Bruce Jenner Fallout: Transgender Community Angry For Exploiting Announcement

The transgender community is not happy with Bruce Jenner for timing a transitioning announcement with season 10 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and a reality docu-series.

Last week, news broke that Bruce Jenner is transitioning into a woman and in talks with Diane Sawyer to come out as a transgender.

This has been met with a lot of support but also a lot of criticism. The surprising voice of anger comes from the transgender community itself. Zoey Tur, a leader in the L.A. transgender community, told TMZ Live that Bruce is exploiting the announcement as a build up to Keeping Up with the Kardashians and to gain more money.

Tur said: “This is a civil rights battle. This is not about selling TV shows.”

Tur has a point. This is not another wedding of Kim Kardashian that needs to be top secret in order to not spoil a TV show.

On another hand, maybe Bruce Jenner is indeed a drama queen and wants to come out in the grandest way possible. Jenner’s family already knows — aren’t those the most important people in this issue?

What do you guys think?
