Plies and Timbaland Poke Fun at Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair Cover
After breaking the internet with her Vanity Fair cover yesterday (June 1), many continue to marvel at Caitlyn Jenner's transformation. Hordes of celebrities chimed in and applauded Jenner -- formerly Bruce Jenner -- for her resiliency and decision to push forward as a transgender woman. Others like Timbaland and Plies didn't seem too supportive and each took to their respective social media accounts to sound off.
It doesn't seem as if Timbo will follow suit and call Bruce by her name new Caitlyn, according to his Facebook post. The producer posted a meme of Arsenio Hall's character in Coming to America reading: "His momma named him Bruce, Imma call him Bruce." A look in the comments of the Facebook post shows people taking aim at Timbaland for poking fun at Jenner. "Timothy Zachery Mosley - For someone who chooses to identify by a different name than the one their mamma gave them, this comes off as incredibly hypocritical," one person wrote.
Piles used his Instagram to share his thoughts about Caitlyn Jenner and seemed utterly surprised by her quick transformation. "I don't know where bihh got titties from that fast, bihh," he said in a video post. "If you lookin' for Bruce, bihh, ain't no Bruce, bihh, it's Caitlyn."
Prior to transforming into Caitlyn Jenner, Bruce Jenner sat down with ABC's Diane Sawyer and explained that he would transition into a woman ideally around the spring. Vanity Fair served as his platform to present Caitlyn Jenner to the world and has sparked tremendous responses all over social media. What do you guys think of her decision?
