According to International Business Times, Fenty took to Facebook to post a message, along with a recent photo of Bruce Jenner. The message reportedly read, "Happy Mother's Day everyone. Just wanna say Happy Mother's Day to Bruce Jenner. I'm still calling him Bruce because I don't know the name he will use as he makes his transition. But still wanna thank her for being a great mom to Kim and Kanye and me."

Fenty then reportedly edited the caption to read, "Just wanna give a big shout out to all the beautiful mothers out there! Happy Mother's Day!!!!!! #Respect #LBGT." And he shared the same post via Twitter.
