Khloé Kardashian has never been one to pull punches.
Especially when it comes to her family.
“I just think — and I know Jamie, so I know that’s also why that’s a really low blow,” she said.
And, in total KoKo fashion, she really ground that salt into the wound, saying, “Guess that’s what he felt the need to do for a little press.”
The Kardashian family and the Django Unchained actor have a history of being friendly, so when Foxx got up on stage and took jabs at the unconfirmed transition of Bruce Jenner at the iHeartRadio Music Awards this past Sunday, he had to know the backlash wouldn’t go away quietly or quickly, and that there was no way the close-knit family wouldn’t speak out against his words.
Khloé wasn’t the only one in the family to jump to Bruce’s defense. Burt, one of Bruce’s sons, said, “I would have charged the stage… If security got to me beforehand, I would’ve thrown something at him.”
Foxx might have been trying to get a chuckle at his (hopefully former) friend’s expense, but he, along with everyone else, needs to know transphobia or any other fear or hate of someone because of their sexual orientation is not OK, and it is certainly not OK to make fun of someone for it.
