Jenner debuts post-Bruce look, breaks Twitter

Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender Olympic champion formerly known as Bruce, unveiled her new name and sexy look on June 1 in a Vanity Fair cover shoot, drawing widespread praise and smashing a Twitter record.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender campaigners and many well-wishers welcomed the high-profile debut, as did the 65-year-old Jenner’s family, which includes the media-savvy celebrity Kardashian clan.

Jenner managed to break President Barack Obama’s record for amassing one million Twitter followers in the shortest time; about four hours…

    My lovely wife has a fabulous feature installed on her computer: a Kardashian filter. Yup, our 14 year old found an add on for Ad-block and now she can read the net safe from the K menace. But the best part? You can add other odious pseudo-celebs. Bruce Jenner was blocked, now she can block Caitlyn as well.

    The circus freak show has a long history. Now the tradition has entered the digital Twitterverse. The Kardashian crew excels at monetizing the modern freak show.

      I think you’ve nailed it.

    I wonder why Vanity Fair didn’t bother to air brush his arms and legs. They still look like they belong to a 65 year old man.

    When does the hockey game start?

    It’s time for a musical diversion.

      Heh, I think I have that album.

      It reminds me of the song ” what is the ugliest part of your body” ?

      Some say your nose, some say your toes, but I think its your mind.

    Even 40 years ago during his post-Olympic celebrity period, there was something about his appearance that didn’t look right to me and I turned away from looking at his image whenever it appeared.

  • David Murrell

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but since Jenner won his Olympic gold medal decades ago, he has been a big nothIng, showing up on nothing talk shows, nothing game shows. So this is another nothing publicity gag, with our media cartel slobbering over themselbed in Jenner-worship.

      i wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not all an act just for the money.

    Who cares? They never should have made the Carnival freak shows illegal, this is the replacement.

    Bah! Brucelyn’s big coming out party is so passé!
    We have 12 year old trannies up here getting new laws passed. No kidding!

      What a pathetic collection of sickos. They need treatment, not everyone telling them they’re perfectly normal and playing along with their delusions.

    We need to keep reminding everyone that he’s (I’m not referring to him with female pronouns) a Republican, and this will all go away.
