Kylie Jenner Reacts To Bruce's Gender Identity On 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' Special
With Sunday night's Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce special, fans of the show gained some insight into the story behind Bruce Jenner's recent disclosure that he identifies as a woman. The episode saw each member of reality TV's first family respond in their own way to the news, and Kylie Jenner's reaction was one of acceptance. "I do have concerns about my dad wanting to tell the world, people attacking him and stuff," she said. "Now that I've been told the truth I can move on and get past it."
Before Bruce's April 24 interview with Diane Sawyer, in which he said that he is "for all intents and purposes... a woman," the youngest Jenner expressed messages of support to the person she has always known as her father, posting a "daddy throwback" photo of the Olympian. During the 20/20 special, she and sister Kendall released a joint statement saying “We love our dad very much. He has the biggest heart and all we want is for him to be happy. If he’s happy, we’re happy.” The famously social media-savvy teen then tweeted several times expressing love, support, and admiration for Bruce Jenner. Say what you will about the youngest member of the Kardashian clan, but she is certainly showing a thoughtfulness and maturity in dealing with what was likely very trying event for her family.
Editor’s Note: Per Jenner’s stated preference, Bustle will continue referring to Jenner using he/his pronouns for the time being. We will follow his lead and make any changes to this policy as needed in the future.
