Jamie Foxx Offends Kim Kardashian & Bruce Jenner
Kim Kardashian is not going to be happy with Jamie Foxx at all after the actor made some very bad jokes about Bruce Jenner.
The singer is under fire after making controversial jokes about the retired US Olympian’s feminine appearance. The Oscar winner hosted the second annual iHeartRadio Music Awards on Sunday and during his opening monologue, he took aim at Kim’s stepfather, who has been sporting a more feminine look over the past few months.
Foxx said: “Bruce Jenner will be here, doing some musical performances. He’s doing a ‘his’ and ‘her’ duet all by himself. Look, I’m just busting your b**ls. While I still can.”
In Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, the joke was received with a few laughs and muffled groans, while viewers at home took to the Internet to express their outrage over the ill-advised comments.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton wrote on Twitter: “Boo! Shame on you #iHeartAwards for allowing @iamjamiefoxx to be on national television! Those #BruceJenner jokes were wrong!”, while other Twitter users labelled the joke as “crass”, “hateful”, “derogatory” and “ignorant”.
Foxx also took aim at fallen hip-hop mogul Marion 'Suge' Knight, who is battling health issues behind bars while he awaits trial over a fatal hit-and-run incident in January, and Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams, who recently lost a legal battle with Marvin Gaye’s heirs over their 2013 hit Blurred Lines. Foxx said: “Marvin Gaye had an incredible year this year, he made $7.4 million dollars just last week. He might be dead, but he ain’t dead broke.”
