Jamie Foxx Made A Bruce Jenner Joke While Hosting The IHeartRadio Awards

Jamie Foxx is the latest celebrity to put his foot in his mouth for making an insensitive joke.

According to NY Daily News reports:

Jamie Foxx, this year’s iHeartRadio music awards host, is catching some heat for his comments about “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Bruce Jenner.

During his opening monologue Sunday night, the “Annie” actor, 47, commented about reports that the former Olympian is taking the steps to transition to a woman.

The comedian joked that Jenner would be performing during the awards show.

“(He) will be here doing a his and hers duet by himself,” Foxx told the audience with a photo of the reality star dad up behind him.

“I’m just busting your balls while I still can,” he added.

Jenner has not publicly spoken about the topic but will reportedly address his gender transition on this season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

Moments after Foxx’s comments aired people took to social media blasting the insensitive comments made by the comedian.

Do you think he should publicly apologize? He has yet to comment on the situation.
