Khloe Kardashian has responded to Jamie Foxx's recent comments about Bruce Jenner's alleged gender transition. Foxx, at the iHeartRadio awards on 29th March, made a series of jokes about Kardashian's step-father which he has been widely criticised for and accused of transphobia.
Khloe Kardashian has criticised Jamie Foxx for his comments on Bruce Jenner's alleged gender transition.
"We got some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight," Foxx said at the awards show. "We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He's doing a his-and-her duet all by himself."
Foxx continued his running joke later on in the evening, stating: "Look, I'm just busting your balls... while I still can."
Rumours about Jenner's alleged transition from male to female began circulating last year after his apparently changing appearance, including surgery on his Adam's apple, was widely commented on. Sources close to the Kardashian-Jenner family seemingly confirmed Jenner was transitioning earlier this year, although the family or are yet to officially confirm the news.
"I just think it's a low blow," Kardashian said in an interview with Yahoo. "I think it's very mean, but you know, I wish him all the best. It is what it is. I just think - and 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."
Kardashian is not the only member of Jenner's family to criticise Foxx on his comments. Jenner's son Burt, from his first marriage to Chrystie Jenner, told TMZ he was appalled and implied that Foxx's comments had been a publicity stunt.
"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," Burt said. "I would have charged the stage... If security got to me beforehand, I would've thrown something at him."
