Jamie Foxx was the host of last night’s iHeartRadio Music Awards. He began his monologue with a joke about the lawsuit Marvin Gaye’s estate won against Robin Thicke and Pharrell. “Marvin Gaye made $7.4 million just last week! He’s making beats in heaven, it’s crazy,” he quipped.
Then he moved on to Suge Knight: “He will not be here tonight,” Foxx said of Knight. “He founded Tha Dogg Pound, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and now he needs a seeing eye dog.”
But it was his jokes about Kardashian family patriarch (and soon to be co-matriarch) Bruce Jenner that had everybody talking this morning.
“Bruce Jenner will be here, doing some musical performances. He’s doing a ‘his’ and ‘her’ duet all by himself,” Foxx joked. “Look, I’m just busting your balls. While I still can.”
The Jenner joke went over well with audience, but it ignited a Twitter firestorm with many saying Foxx — who later performed his Chris Brown featured song ‘You Changed Me‘ — was insensitive and “transphobic”.
