We have been so swept up in the overwhelming love and support that celebs, public figures, and fellow ‘normal’ people have been showering on Caitlyn Jenner, that we’d somehow kinda forgotten that we actually lived in a world where not everybody is as accepting and lovely as the majority have seemed to be.
One of the peepz to make our eyes pop out of our skull with uncalled for, mean comments includes rapper Snoop Dogg, who dubbed Caitlyn as “a science project” when slamming the amount of news coverage her transition has recieved compared to his pal Akon’s charity work.
Posting a photo of his friend, a caption on the pic read: “Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million Africans with solar power.
“I’m really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project Bruce Jenner is. #Society”
This is not cool on a whole number of levels, wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world where you can big someone up without pulling another person down, eh?
Snoop’s comments came around the same time as Tom Cruise’s son, Connor, criticized the decision for Caitlyn to be honoured with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPYS in July.
Tweeting-’n’-deleting, the 20-year-old moaned: “Really?? Winning the AA award for courage?? Ashton is going to come out and yell PUNK’D.
“Don’t get me wrong. Do what you feel like doing and don’t let anyone stop you. But everyone is taking this way too seriously…There are so many more important things that should be talked about…And SO MANY MORE IMPORTANT PEOPLE that actually deserve an award.
“Like the fact that we are overfishing and in 30 years there will be no more fish. Seems dumb but 85 percent of the worlds protein is fish.
“That’s one of thousands of things that should be of a higher importance than what is currently being gone over…Or what about the fact that our planet is becoming less habitable on a daily basis.
“Yet the population is increasing at an alarming rate…Or the fact that we all can’t even get a long on earth lol. We fight and kill each other. We have war and poverty. This needs to change. (sic)”
Appaz the world’s environmental issues are Caitlyn’s fault then? We actually despair.
Despite the handful of nasty comments, Caitlyn has been hailed and “inspiration” and “hero” among the majority, with many celebs – including Sam Smith, Anna Kendrick, and President bloomin’ Obama, praising the former Olympian for being so open about her transition and for encouraging any struggling transgender people to speak out.
Which, by the way, we wholeheartedly agree with.
