So, when Caityln Jenner debuted her new look on Vanity Fair, last year, she got a lot of support. But not everyone was done with the swirl. Such as these people:
- CLINT EASTWOOD
During the taping of¬†Spike’s Guys Choice Awards on June 6, last year, while introducing Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Eastwood reportedly rattled off names of other athletes who became actors, including “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody. Due to the offensive nature,¬†Spike’s Senior Vice President of Communications David Schwarz, put out a statement saying that part would be cut out when the award show broadcasts on June 18.
Timbaland posted a meme, taken from Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America,which read: “His¬†momma named him Bruce, Imma call him Bruce.” When the backlash became much, Timbaland said he only found the meme funny and that’s why he posted it.
- CHRIS BROWN
Chris Brown also posted a meme of Akon’s picture with the inscription: “Shout out to Akon! He’s¬†¬†about to supply 600 million Africans with solar power. Im [sic] really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society.”
- SNOOP DOGG
Snoop Dogg posted the exact same meme as Chris Brown and got a lot of lashing and the post had, as at last count, over 11,000 comments.
- CONNOR CRUISE
Connor Cruise is Tom Cruise’s son and he posted this on Twitter after it was announced that Caitlyn would be receiving the¬†Courage Award at the ESPY Awards : “Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is gonna come out and yell PUNK’D,” the 20-year-old wrote. He continued: “Don’t get me wrong. Do what you feel like doing and don’t let anyone stop you. But everyone is taking this way too seriously‚Ä¶There are so many more important things that should be talked about‚Ä¶And SO MANY MORE IMPORTANT PEOPLE that actually deserve an award.” After the backlash, he deleted the tweets but defended himself by writing: “Totally twisting what I said, if you read what I said I totally support being happy and am glad she is happy,” Cruise wrote. “We just need to as a nation and a world get back to business and making everything a better place. Way more about the problems the world needs to solve than about her guys.”
