Viewers of last night’s iHeartRadio Music Awards are still talking about Jamie Foxx’s opening monologue – but the buzz isn’t good!
The show’s host came under fire after delivering two highly criticized quips about Bruce Jenner’s transition from a male to female, as many are calling Jamie’s jokes “transphobic.”
“We have some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight,” the Annie actor said. “We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
Jamie added, “Look. I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
Viewers were quick to respond on Twitter about the offensive gags. Blogger Perez Hilton tweeted, “Boo! Shame on you #iHeartAwards for allowing @iamjamiefoxx to be transphobic on national television! Those #BruceJenner jokes were wrong!!!”
