In case you’ve missed it, Jamie Foxx appeared on stage at the iHeartRadio Music Awards and put Bruce Jenner on blast for his gender transition. If you hadn’t heard, Bruce Jenner is transitioning from a man to a woman. Jamie Foxx took that as an opportunity to grab a few laughs while hosting the awards show.
Foxx told the audience, “We’ve got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
Chris Brown seemed to get a laugh out of that, but it mostly fell flat. Foxx tried again for a laugh by saying, “Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
Khloe Kardashian has jumped to the former Olympian’s defense, calling Foxx’s comments a “low blow.”
She revealed, “I just think it’s a low blow. I think it’s very mean. I wish him all the best. It is what it is. I know Jamie, so I think that’s also why that’s a really low blow. But hey, guess that’s what he felt the need to do for a little press.”
Prior to that, Jenner’s son Burt also chastised the comedian for his rude comments. He said, “I think he is just copying Kevin Hart because Kevin Hart is taking all his movie opportunities. He’s copying him – man’s on a roll and Jamie Foxx is on the way down. He’s got his mojo going so he’s got to copy what’s working.”
