Jamie Foxx’s latest hosting gig at the 2015 iHeartRadio Awards left a few hurt feelings in its wake. After a joke about Bruce Jenner’s reported sex change, it was only a matter time before a member of the Kardashian clan responded. And who else but the family’s unofficial defender, Khloe Kardashian?
In a recent interview with Yahoo’s The Insider, the reality starlet offered her thoughts on Foxx’s quip, calling it a “low blow.”
“I just think it’s a low blow,” she said. “I think it’s very mean, but you know, I wish him all the best. It is what it is. I just think — and I know Jamie, so I think that’s also why that’s a really low blow, but hey. Guess that’s what he felt the need to do for a little press.”
Foxx made a faux introduction of Jenner as a musical performance guest, joking that the former Olympian would be performing a his-and-her duet. The comment was criticized as “transphobic” by naysayers on Twitter.
“We got some groundbreaking performances here too tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself,” he said. “Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.”
No surprise that the Kardashians were not amused.
