Jamie Foxx is now being called “transphobic” and “disgusting” after he made two jokes about Bruce Jenner’s reported transition into a woman while hosting an awards show.

Foxx opened the iHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday night when the former Olympic athlete’s picture appeared on the screen.

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

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


Though the jokes were harmless and Foxx made plenty others about Suge Knight and Marvin Gaye, some watching at home said they were “disgusting” and that Foxx was being allowed to be “transphobic on national television.”

Others said critics needed to lighten up.
