Jimmy Kimmel apologizes to Caitlyn Jenner for trans jokes
Caitlyn Jenner with talk show host Jimmy Kimmel
Caitlyn Jenner was fodder for lots jokes while she was transitioning. Many standup comics used her appearance to get a laugh in the years before she came out as transgender.
On Tuesday night, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel apologized for the jokes he made. However, that apology only came after some prodding from Jenner.
Appearing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live talk show, Jenner slyly confronted Kimmel about making her a punchline.
‘Kris and I, we had gone our separate directions, not because of gender issues but because of other things,’ Jenner told Kimmel.
‘And there I was back in Malibu all by myself, and so I slowly went through, told all my children, because it had been just hammered all over the media for the longest time,’ she continued.
Then Jenner got to her point, saying, ‘In fact, guys like you, making, hmm, some jokes.’
Kimmel quickly replied, ‘We didn’t know what was happening, we thought you were just vain.’
The host paused a moment, then added, ‘We didn’t know what was going on. Sorry about that, by the way.’
‘It’s quite alright,’ Jenner initially said.
Then she turned to the audience and teased, ‘Now he’s going to apologize.’
Turning back to Kimmel, Jenner said, ‘But I accept your apology.’
Kimmel referenced fellow late night host Jimmy Fallon as someone who had made especially cruel jokes about Jenner’s appearance.
She acknowledged that, but complimented Kimmel, saying, ‘You’ve always been my favorite, that’s why I thought I would do this.’
