Jamie Foxx has been accused of transphobia after making fun of Bruce Jenner and his reported gender transition into becoming a woman.
The actor made the inappropriate comment while hosting the 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards which held at the Shrine Auditorium in LA on Sunday. He said:
Jamie then added: ‘Look, I’m just busting your balls while I still can.’
Although Bruce has still yet to publicly discuss his rumored gender reassignment, it didn’t stop host Foxx from receiving a backlash on Twitter over his remarks. Perez Hilton was first to tweet complaining:

That Bruce Jenner joke wasn’t funny at all. Like what was the point of that?
