Bruce Jenner's Son Slams Jamie Foxx's Insensitive Joke

Bruce Jenner's Son Slams Jamie Foxx's Insensitive Joke

Bruce Jenner‘s son Burt is slamming iHeartRadio Music Awards host Jamie Foxx for an insensitive joke he made about the reality star’s transition to a woman.

“I think he is just copying Kevin Hart because Kevin Hart is taking all of his movie opportunities,” he told TMZ. “He is copying him. Man’s on a roll, you know? And Jamie Foxx is on the way down, so he’s gotta keep his mojo going. He’s gotta copy what’s working.”

Kevin previously mocked Bruce‘s transition in a joke at the Justin Bieber roast, which airs later tonight on Comedy Central.

“[He made jokes] in front of my sister. He got a little lucky, because you can make jokes about my dad all you want, but you can’t make jokes in front of my sister and make my sister feel awkward,” Burt added. “I would’ve charged the stage.”

    Good to see someone has the balls to make fun of transgenders for being retarded.

    if a white comedian made these jokes about a black soon to be transgender well not only would this be insensitive but I am sure Al Sharpton would be calling for a probe into racism as well……

    Awkward? She should feel more embarassed the way that whale of a sister walks around like a slut with her tits out and sheer skirts showing her buttcrack. Thats awkward….

    I’ve never held this kook to a high standard. I’m more ashamed that the people monitoring the event and who knew all his jokes, did not stop this. At a time when trans kids (and others who feel different) are killing themselves I would have expected there to be more people wanting to be allies and spreading kindness. It’s easy for people to poke fun of celebrities, but would he have said this face to face with a trans kid? I’d hope not. It’s just sad.

    Clear this idiot knows nothing about Jamie’s career…first off Jamie doesn’t do romantic comedy’s whis is what Kevin heart does. Second of all, the joke was not that offensive. Third, what does Bruce expect…he has Bing from alpha male to a freak and he wanted to put this crap on TV.

    While I think the joke was inappropriate and simply not funny, there is no race component here. If a White comedian made the same joke you wouldn’t have commented as you did. Stop injecting race into everything!

    You’re reaching really hard with this one

  • angela

    So are you calling all transgenders freaks then…rhat right there is a form of racism grow up and get a life

  • angela

    So you think transgenders are retarded…first of retarded is so politically incorrect these days and when it was used it was used against a different type of group of people..grow up and and get a life

  • Kestin

    Actually, plenty of white comedians make fun of Bruce too so what do you have to say to that? Race baiting much?

  • Drew Flanagan

    It’s not that much of a stretch. Transgendered persons are easily the tiniest minority group.

  • Tay

    It is a total stretch. There was no racial context in the joke, yet here we are once again talking about the horrible social inequities that White people face.

    First…who on Earth is freaking Burt?! He would’ve never been invited, so no one has to worry about him charging the stage. Now back on topic, this Burt character has a lot to say because his dad was the butt of the joke, but when Khloe made KKK jokes he was silent. You can’t pick and choose what you want to defend on moral grounds because of what affects you. He can have a seat.

    I thought Jamie was better than this. And when I heard his jokes, that was the first thing that came to mind, that kids are killing themselves because of so many awful things.

    I’m not saying we can’t have jokes. I’m not saying everyone has to be PC. But sometimes, some things should not be said. And IMO the jokes weren’t even that great. It felt like something someone might say when they have nothing to offer, so they went for the stupid obvious joke.

  • b324

    So basically you are an idiot.

    I dont see what the problem is. Bruce is a public figure, and I def see no reason for anyone to babysit him, specially a comedian. The joke was funny af, stop acting like babies. And Khart is a cool comedian taking over right now. But remember all the longevity Foxx has, and all the real movies he been in showing off acting chops, singing. Jamie isnt just a comedian, he’s a full blown entertainer and still at the top of his game. Khart has a while to go to get to Jamie’s level
