Russell Brand Defends Bruce Jenner Amid Sex Change Reports: ‘Stop Bullying’

Celebrity

Who knew Russell Brand was keeping up with the Kardashian/Jenner family?! The 39-year-old comedian stood up for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians patriarch Bruce Jenner on his daily YouTube show The Trews on Friday, accusing the media of bullying the former Olympian over his physical appearance.
“Transphobia seems to be the most recent and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated,” Brand said, referring to several reports claiming Jenner is getting a sex change and the recent InTouch magazine cover where they photoshopped lipstick and blush on the 65-year-old reality star’s face.
