Hmmm… we're not sure how we feel about this!
Now that Bruce Jenner has officially come out as a transgendered individual, he has received tons of support from celebrities in every area of pop culture.

This includes designer Diane von Furstenberg.
On Tuesday, the style icon decided to post a tribute of sorts to the former Olympian with a since-deleted picture on Instagram — of his head photoshopped onto a picture of her body.
Uh… Say what?!
The 68-year-old posted:
The caption read:
"Bruce Jenner… You are the woman you wanted to be ! I salute your strength, courage and honesty. By speaking out, you have spoken for so many who suffer .. … Love Diane @kimkardashian @kendeljenner."
The original image comes from the fashion queen's 1974 ad promoting her signature wrap dress that has the slogan, "Feel like a woman, wear a dress."
Not surprisingly, the altered pic ruffled a few feathers!
While her message definitely had good intentions, it was perhaps a bit inappropriate to suggest to Bruce what woman he should become or what he should look like.
It's important to note that the athlete's daughter Kendall Jenner, who was tagged in the post, has walked in her runway show, most recently during New York Fashion Week in February.
When asked for comment, Barry Diller's wife said:
"I admire Bruce Jenner's strength, courage and honest and have so much respect [for] him using his voice to speak for people who have none. I wish him nothing but a lifetime of happiness."
We want to know what YOU guys think!
Was DVF's Instagram post offensive or inspirational?! SOUND OFF in the comments section (below)!
( From Perez: Bruce stated in the interview to use "he" and "him" so we will do so in our coverage until that changes. )
