According to reports, he introduced Johnson by comparing him to other famous athletes, such as “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody…” The joke obviously fell flat because the crowd did not laugh. Instead groans were heard.
David Schwarz, Spike TV senior vice president of communications, told USA Today that the remark made about Jenner will be removed in the version of the show that will air on June 18. “We will remove the reference in the version that will air,” he confirmed.
Since Jenner introduced herself to the world on the cover of Vanity Fair last Monday (June 1, 2015), reactions have been generally positive and supportive. However, some celebs like Chris Brown and Drake Bell have not been so nice.
