Caitlyn Jenner Steps Out After 'South Park' Defends Her Hero Status

Caitlyn Jenner wears a white polo shirt and a pink skirt while stepping out to run errands on Thursday (September 17) in Calabasas, Calif.

The 65-year-old former Olympian was mentioned on last night’s season premiere of South Park and the show defended her status as a hero.

When the character Kyle says that “I don’t think Caitlyn Jenner is a hero,” the new character PC Principal suspends him from school.

“This kind of transphobic and bigoted hate speech isn’t going to fly here, bro,” PC Principal says. “I thought we were all on board that Caitlyn Jenner is an amazing beautiful woman who had the exquisite bravery of a beautiful butterfly flying against the wind. And then this s–t flies out of people’s mouths!”

    Ok Bruce u lookin cute. Does this mean ur gay tho?

  • Davis

    The episode flew over your head

  • Ryan Copernoll

    You serious? I don’t think they are standing up for her….stupid source of celeb news ever

    JJ! No! It went over your head. The episode was speaking to the hypocrisy of the public this past year with issues like Ms. Jenner’s transition. It showed the extreme of the other viewpoints and being politically correct to the point that it can get to a point of bullying. The creators have done really good jobs in the past with taking issues that are happening politically and socially and playfully playing them out in the town of South Park. The town goes through “extreme” phases (buying SUVs then Prius’ and then becoming terribly smug,etc.) and then usually Stan or Kyle have a lesson learned and explain so at the end of most of the episodes. It’s a smarter show than people think and the creators aren’t making a mockery of Caitlyn Jenner, just the emotions that were evoked from the public in response to her transition. Last night’s episode was left open (me thinks it’s part of a story arc) and I’m sure will clarify all of this.

    Thank you, finally someone understands! They also showed that people were very critical of Bruce as a person before the transition, but as soon as Cait was born all was forgotten and she was a hero. 5 seconds before that the same ppl were criticizing Bruce for being a bad parent (Kylie/Tyga, Kylie and her fake lips etc), his carcrash which killed a woman etc etc. Now everyone just focusses on Cait being brave for transitioning, when you bring up past issues you are a bigot, because ‘you are critical of a transgender woman’. That’s why one of the kids said something like not hating Cait/her transition, but just not liking her/never liked her (even before her transition) at the end of the show.
    I think JJ just watched the clip and really didn’t see the sarcasm in that (are you blind/deaf, helloooo?).

    This whole issue reminds me of Michael Jackson; when he was alive people made fun of him and hated him for the child molester stuff, when he died he was hailed like a God; tribute shows, documentaries on different channels etc etc. When you say something bad about him you need to shut the hell up because ‘he is dead, you can’t say mean things about the dead/he was a lost soul, he was unhappy’.

    I don’t think the person who wrote this article understood the episode lol.

  • BradyAnderson

    I think JJ was being sarcastic in their review. I believe they were well aware the episode was mocking all the crazies who go into hysterics anytime a negative word is said about Caitlyn Jenner.

  • suzybel

    Since when is the statement “I don’t think Caitlin Jenner is a hero” transphobic and bigoted? I myself, don’t consider Caitlin Jenner a hero and I do not consider that statement transphobic or bigoted. I just don’t consider him a hero. And my use of ‘him’ is NOT transphobic either. He is still a man. This is going beyond ridiculous. Heaven forbid we utter something that some group does not consider politically correct.

    Good point. We’re an interesting group of species,I’ll tell you that!

    ok, the writer of this article didn’t understand the episode, or this season >.>

  • John Smith

    Seeing how Bruce has now mowed down ~15 pedestrians in the subsequent episodes since this “article” was written, maybe take it down? Or, if not for that reason, maybe take it down because it’s absolutely ridiculous. What does Bruce Jenner walking in public in a white shirt have to do with ANYTHING?? Is Bruce Jenner being spotted in public newsworthy now?
