AceShowbiz - Caitlyn Jenner is hitting back at Jimmy Kimmel after the latter mocked her on his ABC late-night show. After being branded as "Donald Trump in a Wig," the retired Olympic gold medalist accused the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host of democrat privilege.
"Last night @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig. He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on," the former athlete began her post she shared on her Twitter account on Friday, June 11. Wondering why the left and the LGBTQ+ community didn't criticize the comedian for his remark, the former "I Am Cait" star then accused the left of double standards and claimed that he has been protected, writing, "Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat."
Not stopping there, Caitlyn continued to post more of Jimmy's politically improper jokes in the past. In a separate tweet that included a screenshot showing the comedian in a black face during a "Saturday Night Live" skit in 2000, the Republican candidate wrote, "Speaking of @jimmykimmel he also received a pass from the WOKE on his use of black face and racist actions. Hypocrite."
"Also @jimmykimmel got a pass from the WOKE while he asked women to fondle him in public. His treatment of women is wrong. Disgusting. Vile," Caitlyn quipped in the following tweet along with a clip from Jimmy's old TV program "The Man Show". In another post, the 71-year-old also pointed out that the TV personality made racist jokes to the Asian community. "Sad that @jimmykimmel has contributed to #AAPIHate," she alleged the late-night TV show host. "Is there any group he won't attack? Jimmy, it's time to #StopAsianHate."
On Thursday, June 10, Jimmy mocked Caitlyn's decision to run for California governor during the opening monologue of his ABC late-night show. He began to judge the former athlete, "[Caitlyn]'s just trying to get attention." Not stopping there, he claimed, "Caitlyn Jenner has a better chance of being the next Batman than she does governor of California. She knows little to nothing about anything, really."
