Jamie Foxx Under Fire for 'Transphobic' Bruce Jenner Jokes

Jamie Foxx is in hot water after making a joke about Bruce Jenner's alleged transition into a woman at the iHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday night.

"We got Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances. He's doing a his-and-her duet all by himself."

That awkward, nearly silent response probably wasn't exactly what Foxx was hoping to get from the audience there.

And it got even worse as soon as he added this...

"I'm just busting your balls while I still can. Give it up!"

Yeah, bad. Just... bad.

As you probably already guessed, viewers on social media were anything but pleased with Foxx's comments, with some even accusing the actor of transphobia.

And even worse - Jenner's youngest daughter, Kylie, was scheduled to make an appearance at the show, though it's unclear if she showed up.

Of course, Jenner has yet to comment on the alleged gender transition. But he will reportedly address it on this season of his family's reality show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

As of late Sunday night, there has been no comment from Foxx, iHeartMedia and Jenner.
