A Caitlyn Jenner-inspired Halloween costume has a lot of people very angry, calling the $75 costume cruel and insensitive to the transgender community.
A Change.org petition calling for the costume's recall already has about 2,800 signatures. The petition calls the costume transphobic.
"To make a costume out of a marginalized identity reduces that person and community to a stereotype for privileged people to abuse. In this case, if you follow through with production of a Caitlyn Jenner costume, cisgender people will purchase it to make fun of her and our community," the petition reads.
People on Twitter didn't have kind words for the costume either.
But this should really come as no surprise. One of the websites carrying the costume, anytimecostumes.com, has tons of insensitive and frankly, stupid, Halloween costumes. Like this Vampire getting a blow job...
Or this snake (d*ck) charmer...
And this...thing. It's not offensive, but it's quite possibly the most horrifying Halloween costume ever.
In conclusion, don't be a jackass. There are plenty of other Halloween costumes that don't make you look like the worst person ever.
Comedian Bill Burr is crass. And that's putting it lightly.
But for those who know and love his comedy—that is his appeal. Some people, however, didn't get this memo after watching his segment on Conan where he made some jokes about Caitlyn Jenner.
A few people on Twitter voiced their dismay at his bit, which focused mainly on him needing time to "say goodbye" to Bruce (Caitlyn's former name) and her new breasts.
If Bill Burr had an informed opinion on the trans community, it'd be different. Then maybe he could craft an intelligent joke about Caitlyn.— Jillian Gutowitz (@jillboard) August 21, 2015
@billburr I hope you realise how much of a jerk you were being about Caitlyn Jenner. you're a transphobic a hole ok. you're not funny— breanna perkins (@breisapenguin) August 21, 2015
Between Bill Burr on Caitlyn Jenner to Jeremy Renner calling Black Widow a slut, "Conan" remains the talk show to embarrass yourself on!— Tara Ariano (@TaraAriano) August 21, 2015
But if you actually look through Twitter, there aren't actually that many tweets condemning the comedian. This tweet exchange illuminates that fact perfectly.
Real outrage or people not understanding comedy? Meh. Probably a bit of both.
Caitlyn Jenner could face up to one year in county jail if convicted of vehicular manslaughter, the charge recommended by the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. to the D.A., TMZ reports.
A 161-page report says Jenner "set off a chain of events" that led to a motorist's death during a crash in February.
Law enforcement officials told TMZ Jenner was traveling under the speed limit, but too fast for road conditions.
Caitlyn Jenner put her brave on and wore a women's bathing suit in public for the first time on her show I am Cait this weekend. Since Jenner has started her transition, wearing a swim suit has been something she has expressed concern about.
But as you can see, she faced this challenge along with many others on her new reality show.
In other Jenner/Kardashian news, Kris Jenner was seen with Caitlyn in public for this first time since their split. They appeared to be both getting along in a photo posted on Kim Kardashian's Instagram.
The lyrics in question come in around the 4:50 mark:
"I see the btch in you Caitlyn, I keep the pistol tucked like Bruce Jenner's dck. No disrespect though, not at all. No pun intended, that took a lot of balls."
He did ~sort of~ offer an apology at the end of his freestyle:
"It's all in fun, man… I just say sh*t to say it. It's very rarely personal."
See, he was just joking. What do you think about that, Caitlyn?
When Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Aurther Ashe Award for Courage July 15, for many it was an empowering, beautiful moment of acceptance for transgender people. Unfortunately, it sparked a row between the two minds most responsible for the acclaimed television show and film Friday Night Lights
Peter Berg, who directed the Friday Night Lights film and developed the series through its five-season run, was not too happy with the ESPY award given to Jenner. And like all people with opinions these days, took his voice to social media.
Berg posted the following to Instagram:
So, here's where it gets a little interesting. Both the Friday Night Lights film and show was based on a book reported and written by Buzz Bissinger. Bissinger also wrote the the famous Vanity Fair article that introduced Caitlyn Jenner to the world.
Berg and Bissinger are cousins and worked extensively on both the Friday Night Lights film and television.
Bissinger gave a respectful response to Berg's comments July 16 through The Hollywood Reporter.
I love Pete,I am not in the business of censoring his comments nor he mine. He said what he believes, rare to begin with and unheard of in Hollywood where disingenuous discourse is the universal traffic.
Caitlyn Jenner gave a heartfelt and powerful speech. She was obviously humbled and honored. She is an inspiration to all of us who struggle with difference and that includes me.
American society is all too quick to condemn and humiliate.
Jenner's speech, of course, had nothing to do with this row, and many outlets are calling it a moving, powerful thing. So, if you'd like, watch the full acceptance speech below instead of treading through the criticism.
