Caitlyn Jenner Nails Emotional Speech At ESPY Awards — But Did She Diss Kris Jenner?
Caitlyn Jenner brought down the house at the 2015 ESPY Awards in an emotional speech, but in true Caitlyn fashion, with some laughs.
“Picking out this outfit,” she said. “O.K. girls, I get it. You have to get the shoes, the hair, the makeup, the whole process was exhausting.”
She joked: “Next the Fashion Police. Please be kind on me. I’m new at this.”
Caitlyn was joined by 9 of her 10 children including: Brody Jenner, Brandon Jenner, Cassandra Jenner, Burt Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and former stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian. Missing from the group was Rob Kardashian.
“I never wanted to hurt anyone else most of all my family and my kids,” she said. “I always wanted my children to be so proud of their dad what he was able to accomplish. You guys have given me so much support. I am so so grateful to have all of you in my life, thank you.”
However, Caitlyn did not thank ex wife Kris Jenner during her speech or even mention their marriage of 24 years. Kris was shown in the video before Caitlyn’s speech, but was not mentioned by name, and neither were her other former spouses Linda Thompson or Chrystie Jenner.
Jenner did, though, take time to shed light on the transgender community and the issues they face.
“For the people out there wondering what this is all about, it’s about what happens from here. It’s not just about one person, it’s about thousands of people. It’s not just about me, it’s about all of us accepting one another. We’re all different. That’s not a bad thing, that’s a good thing and while it may not be easy getting past the things you don’t understand, I want to prove it is absolutely possible if we only do it together.”
She added: “Trans people deserve something vital; they deserve your respect.”
