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.
Bruce Jenner’s transition has been the topic of much discussion over the last few months, and he recently revealed during his interview with Diane Sawyer that he now regards himself as a woman. However, the former Olympian has chosen not to live as a woman in the public eye, and a statement from E! News read that he “will be referred to as Bruce Jenner and with male pronouns until he specifies otherwise.”
For this reason, there has been a lot of confusion around why Fenty chose to post the picture of Jenner — was his post coming from a place of love or was it a dis? We’re really not sure.
