D.L. Hughley Compares Caitlyn Jenner…To Mrs. Doubtfire

Published: Tuesday 21st Jul 2015 by David

D.L. Hughley is unimpressed by the praise Caitlyn Jenner is receiving from the athletic community.

Why the actor compared the trans-woman to the fictional character Mrs. Doubtfire?

Find out below…

Before becoming Caitlyn, Jenner lived as Bruce Jenner. As Bruce the Reality TV personality rose to fame as a globally recognised Olympian and the step-father to Kris Jenner‘s Kardashian clan in recent years.

Following her transition she was presented with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the ESPYs sporting awards ceremony.

This has angered Hughley.

He told TMZ:

It’s named after Arthur Ashe. Arthur Ashe grew up in Richmond, Va., He’s a symbol of courage. He helped desegregate the south and he fought AIDS with dignity and honor. Caitlyn Jenner put on a dress. I don’t think it’s the same thing.

His criticism of the star didn’t end there.

For, he also took to Instagram to suggest that Jenner was no different than Robin Williams’  Mrs. Doubtfire.

    Totally agree. Bruce Jenner is not a transgender female; he still has his penis and no desire to go through with the operation. By definition, he is a transvestite, aka a drag queen. He’s only exploiting the LGBT community, only this current generation of LGBT people are too stupid to see it.

      Screaming at how narrow-minded you are. She is STILL transgendered regardless of her biological sexxxual organs. You’re an idiot and if you knew anything, you’d know that calling someone a “drag queen in a dress” or a “transvestite” is derogatory.

      None of us know if she’s made her full transition and it’s not FOR US to know, mind YOUR business. And just a side note, SĒX is what’s between your legs, GENDER (what you perceive yourself to be) is in your head. Please educate yourself before making such a crass statement, next time.

      Bruce is fake

      And so iscairlyn talking about you’re a Republican but you’re a transgender? How are you supporting other transpeople?

    He’s a comedian! Who tf cares lol…..America is sooooo sensitive and PC now. I have heard comedians say much worse!

    • Biracial Butterfly July 21, 2015

      but he’s not trying to be funny, he’s trying to be rude and hateful. there’s a difference.

      • Sherry July 21, 2015

        Be that as it may, who cares! I’m sure plenty feel the same way but are afraid of the backlash. Wasn’t he upset because the media kept calling Serena Williams a man but Caitlyn beautiful?

    Can I ask why this site allows the word “T*****”, but bans words like “fa**ot” and “ni**er”? They are all derogatory words.

    • Slayoncé Giselle-Knowles Carter (Fornerly RihNavy) July 21, 2015

      Because it’s a flop.

  5. JASON July 21, 2015

    He is saying what a lot of people feel.I am all for lgbt rights but nothing is courageous about a man who lied to his family for years about his desires. Nothing is courageous about finally realizing who you are and playing the public like a puppet to get more viewership on your various tv spots. He has yet proven himself to be a true activist to his community in which most are in danger every waking second people know their former identity. Maybe DL was crude in what he said but he speaks for a big portion who all feel the very same way that just because two seconds ago you announce you feel female that you deserve this amazing award of honor for courage. Also, why haven’t transgender athletes before him gotten the same award or at least the same consideration.

    PS. My older brother was killed in the early 90’s after he started transition to become a woman.

  6. pat July 21, 2015

    let’s be real….ESPN probably feels the same way…..they only gave him (not a typo) the award for ratings

    • Faf July 21, 2015

      That’s why it was on ABC

  7. Ozzy July 21, 2015

    Is it me or is the majority of hate for Caitlyn coming from BLACK celebrities? This guy, Wendy Williams and more… This came across as less funny and more transphobic.

    • Truth July 21, 2015

      Be quiet.

    • stan July 21, 2015

      nope, not just you

    • Faf July 21, 2015

      No ma’am a lot of soldiers dragging Caitlyn are whites

    Go to the comment section of any article about “Caitlyn” and “her” undeserved ESPY award and you’ll see at least 60% of them agree that “she” didn’t deserve — and I bet most of the people commenting aren’t black celebrities, or even black. Bruce/Caitlyn is an painful example of how the world is turning into an abstract ball of sheer and utter nonsense. Transgenders aren’t akin to an SNL sketch.

    His speech was amazing; and it’s not about him everyone, it is about the young that have so much to endure, and can’t handle it… Let’s spread love, and stop all this hate…. Now me being Navy, I am curious to see how military will handle trans (interesting)….

    i would rather meet mrs doutfire

  12. another bey day something ain’t wrong July 21, 2015

    Bruce Jenner is still a man that have a d%*k and he speak the truth

  13. Truth July 22, 2015

    Bruce jenner is milking the LGBT community, it’s a hoax, this stunt is for distraction of what’s really going on in this country, in one hand you have African Americans getting killed by the masses and a race war is at being pushed ,while the LGBT and it’s narrow minded supporters scream ” finally equality” . The jenners and kardashians live off scandals , this is all fun to them , after all while your all locked up in a camps they will be around longer than you .
