Celebrities React To Caitlyn Jenner's ESPYs Speech On Social Media & So Many Are Inspired By Her Words
The 2015 ESPY Awards on Wednesday night weren't just a celebration of the best athletes in sports — they were also a celebration of the bravery certain athletes have shown even when they're off the field. Caitlyn Jenner was honored with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, and the speech that followed was nothing short of inspiring. Over the past several months, Jenner has been incredibly open about her transition, and in her speech, she addressed the reason why: To use her power and celebrity to bring attention to the trans community and to help give them the respect they deserve. Basically, if you didn't start crying during some part of this speech, you're lying. Her words were so touching and honest, and plenty celebrities turned to social media to react to her speech.
Of course, just about everyone in Jenner's famous family — including Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner — were front and center at the ceremony to support her, and they also offered reactions of their own on Twitter following and even during the awards. But they were far from the only members of Hollywood to be touched by Jenner's speech, and judging by the outpouring of support from so many celebs, Jenner's goal of affecting change in people's hearts about the trans community is already being achieved.
Here are some of their tweets:
