Clint Eastwood’s joke about Caitlyn Jenner will not air when Spike airs the Guys Choice Awards on June 18.
While introducing Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on Saturday night at the event, Eastwood listed off some other athletes who have tried their hand at acting, including “Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody…,” according to USA Today. Spike senior vice president of communications David Schwarz confirmed to EW that the network will cut Eastwood’s comment from the show when it airs.
Jenner made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair last week. Overall, Jenner’s transition has been met with much support from family, fans and the transgender community, and the Olympic gold medalist has expressed excitement on social media for the world to get to know her “true self.”
I’m so happy after such a long struggle to be living my true self. Welcome to the world Caitlyn. Can’t wait for you to get to know her/me.
