“NOT funny!”

That’s the feedback Jamie Foxx is receiving online after he cracked a joke about Bruce Jenner’s transition into a woman.

In his opening monologue as host of the iHeartRadio Awards in LA, Foxx said: “We got some groundbreaking performances here … tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He’s doing a his-and-her duet all by himself.”

The 47-year-old actor then followed up with another joke, saying, “Look, I’m just busting your balls … while I still can”.

The famous crowd, which included musicians such as Justin Timberlake, Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson, didn’t appear too amused by the Oscar winner’s joke, but Foxx really copped it online with viewers accusing him of being “transphobic”.
