Jamie Foxx under fire for “transphobic” Bruce Jenner jokes

In his first stint as iHeartRadio Music Awards host, Jamie Foxx coasted along on controversy: making potentially offensive jokes about Black History Month, American Sniper and Suge Knight throughout the night. But the actor/singer may have crossed a line when he took aim at Bruce Jenner at the top of the show, making light of his alleged transition to a woman. Saying Jenner would be doing a “his-and-her duet” and that he was “busting (his) balls” while he still could, Foxx drew ire from many viewers on Twitter, including celebrity blogger Perez Hilton.

“We have some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”

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

Of course, his comments did not go over well with viewers at home.
