Bruce Jenner Apologizes for Wearing Trump’s “MAGA” Cap. “It was an accident”


TMZ reports:

Caitlyn Jenner did not wear a “Make America Great Again” hat Thursday as a show of support for Donald Trump … it was a mistake tied to golf, a convertible, Starbucks and a purse.

Caitlyn tells TMZ she drove from her Malibu home to Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA, in a 1960 Austin-Healey convertible. Before leaving home she realized she needed a hat … something better than a golf visor to protect her hair. So she rummaged through the 10 hats in her closet and grabbed one without looking at the stitching.

She tells us she was horrified because she now detests Trump after he tweeted about the military transgender ban. Caitlyn says, “What he’s doing to our community is absolutely f***ing awful.”

As for what to do with the hat, she’s thinking of signing it and auctioning it off and giving the proceeds to a transgender cause. On the other hand, she might just rip it up or burn it. Caitlyn says, “I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I’m getting rid of the hat.”

Since Bruce/Caitlyn has absolutely no respect for the LGBT community this website will no longer show any respect for her and from now on will be referring to Caitlyn as Bruce. When Jenner begins to self-identify as a supportive member of the LGBT community and a human being again we will begin calling her  Caitlyn again.

  1. As much as I agree with your feelings about her, misgendering her isn’t the answer. Doing that insults all trans women, not just Caitlyn.

    1. Caitlyn desereves no respect and no support from the LGBT community. This was specifically aimed against her ONLY and it even states that. Perhaps if more ppl in the trans community (other than you because I know you do) would speak out against her this attack on her wouldn’t be needed. But unfortunately you had media whores like Candis Cayne and Jenny Boylan who supportted Caitlyn and tried to make her into a role model despite her blatant disregard for those in out community. This has nothing to do with an attack on the entire trans community and you know that. If anything the trans community should be the ones attacking Jenner and even after all these months there are “crickets”. And just the fact that misgendering and pronoun usage gets a stronger reaction that what she does herself is the true problem. Roy Cohen was gay. And I would never protect him from anything and if I called him an “evil faggot” and said other bad about him would not be a reflection against the entire gay community just him.

      1. Again it’s not about your attitude toward her, which I fully agree with, it’s your use of misgendering as a means of expressing that disrespect that I have an issue with. Think about it Will: If it’s ok to misgender Caitlyn or any other trans person you, I, or anyone has a problem with, then it’s ok to misgender all of us as a means of disrespect. You know my feelings about her Will, but no matter how much negative stuff I’ve written about her or how many times I’ve called her out I have never and would never misgender her. To us, it’s much the same as a black person being referred to by a non-black with the N-word. No matter what the context or the reason it’s just wrong. There are plenty of other ways to express your displeasure and disrespect of a trans person without misgendering them, and I, for one. would prefer if you didn’t cross that line. Our opinions and politics are always debatable, but our genders are not.

          1. Actually Becky at no point in this post do I refer to Jenner a “him/he/male” and do refer to her as “her” so I haven’t really mis-gendered anyone. I just refereed to Jenner by her old name because she doesn’t deserve to be called Caitlyn and be part of our community. And since every Special Snowflake out there says gender is non-bianary and fluid anyway it makes it all a moot point.

          2. C’mon Will, I know you know better than that. Referring to her by her deadname is misgendering her by definition. As I said before, her politics absolutely are fair game for debate. Her gender identity is not, and doing so lends your approval to comments such as “Newsflash it’s still a dude!” That’s not right in my book, and I know you know why.

  2. Rebecca, thank you!!! Will, you wanna talk about Caitlyn hurting her own community and then you pull a stunt like that? “Bruce?” Honestly, I was really disgusted to read that. We all know better. We don’t win this war by lowering our selves, we do it by taking the high road. But please ignore the transphobic remarks you wrote in this article, and the way what you said/are suggesting that calling her by her dead name is a suitable reteliation. It’s not, you are setting the movement back.

    1. So sorry Becky and Riley I forgot that the biggest isssue in the LGBT community is me calling Caitlyn by her former male name. And while we are chastising people and talking about setting the movement back allow me to chastise the T community for still protecting her. Case in point the reading that she got at the Trans Chorus event and Caitlyn was STILL being protected. That my dear is a much bigger issue than me calling her by her old name. Work on that one for awhile and get back to me.

What do you think?
