Spike TV Will Censor Clint Eastwood’s Caitlyn Jenner Joke During Awards Show

Kaitlan Collins White House Correspondent

Clint Eastwood made a small joke about Bruce Jenner’s transition into Caitlyn Jenner while filming Spike TV’s “Guys’ Choice Awards” over the weekend, and now the network is saying it will cut the remark from airing.

While introducing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, 85-year-old Eastwood compared Johnson with other athletes turned actors.

“…Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody.”

A head figure at Spike confirmed that the joke will be cut from the show when it airs later this month. (VIDEO: Caitlyn Jenner: ‘I’m The New Normal’)
