Messing with Koko’s family is no laughing matter! The most outspoken of the Kardashian clan is firing back at Jamie Foxx after he made a ‘transphobic’ joke about her step-father Bruce Jenner.
Khloe Kardashian, 30, is calling out Jamie Foxx, 47, for an offensive comment he made at the iHeartRadio Music Awards about her step-father Bruce Jenner’s rumored gender transition. The TV personality thinks the funnyman crossed the line and took a cheap shot at her family to get publicity.
Khloe Kardashian On Jamie Foxx Diss: Bruce Jenner Joke Was Mean
“I just think it’s a low blow. I think it’s very mean. I wish him all the best. It is what it is,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star told The Insider on April 2 as she promoted the Kardashian Beauty hair care line at ULTA in West Hills, California.
“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,” Khloe added.

Kicking off the March 29 program, the comedian told the crowd: “Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”
But his joke was no laughing matter. Viewers took to social media to blast the actor-singer for the ‘transphobic’ jab. So far, Jamie has remained silent on the ill-received wisecrack.
In March the 1976 Olympic gold medalist was reportedly recovering from surgery after receiving breast implants “a few weeks ago.”
Tell us HollywoodLifers, do you think Jamie should apologize?
