The Kardashian/Jenner Clan Responds To Bruce Jenner’s ‘20/20’ Interview
If tweets are any indication, Bruce Jenner has a healthy amount of support from his family on his transgender journey. After making the highly-anticipated revelation last night (Apr. 24) during his sit-down with Diane Sawyer on 20/20, the former Olympian’s children and ex-wife took to Twitter to rally in support.
After Sawyer mentioned in the telecast that Kris Jenner offered “no comment” on the matter following a request for comment from ABC, the reality family’s matriarch and business manager sent a fiery message to blogger Perez Hilton, who criticized her supposed silence:
@PerezHilton fuck you Perez no one asked me to comment ....and I'm sitting with Bruce now watching this show so let's keep it real...LOL....

Jenner then followed up with a message in support of her ex-husband, calling him her “hero,” as did their daughters Kendall and Kylie. Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian all posted messages in support of Bruce as well:
Not only was I able to call him my husband for 25 years and father of my children, I am now able to call him my hero. — Kris Jenner (@KrisJenner) April 25, 2015
Understandingly, this has been very hard for me. You will hear what I have to say when I'm ready to but...

ABC will air a follow-up surrounding Jenner’s transition on Good Morning America on Monday (Apr. 27). E! will also air an eight-part docu-series, premiering on July 26.
"Living for the first time as the person he feels he was born to be, the docuseries will also explore what Bruce’s transition means for the people in his life and how those relationships are affected, while offering a better understanding of many of life’s challenges," the network stated in a release.
