On Sunday night Jamie Foxx made some awfully off-color jokes about Bruce Jenner at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.
Well not only did many viewers on social media find the jokes to be a bit transphobic and distasteful, but someone close to Bruce had some feelings on the subject too — his son Burt!

When he was asked what he thought of Jamie's jokes about his father, Burt mostly shrugged off the barbs.
But he threw some expert shade back at Jamie while doing so! He said:
"I think he is just copying Kevin Hart because Kevin Hart is taking all of his movie opportunities … Man's on a roll, you know? And Jamie Foxx is on the way down, so he's gotta keep his mojo going. He's gotta copy what's working."
"On the way down?" Ouch!
But what does he mean about copying Kevin Hart? He means at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber — airing tonight! — at which Kendall Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian were in attendance.
"[Kevin made jokes] in front of my sister. He got a little lucky, because you can make jokes about my dad all you want, but you can't make jokes in front of my sister and make my sister feel awkward… I would've charged the stage. If security would have gotten to me beforehand, I would have thrown something at ya."
Wow, them's fighting words! Literally!
But what does he mean "you can make jokes about my dad all you want?"
Hmm, we're guessing he means that former Olympian Bruce is tough enough to take it. It seems to us like he was being chivalrous toward the ladies.
Of course, knowing the Kardashian/Jenner sisters, they can take pretty much anything you can throw at them too!
