Comedienne Judy Gold, left, angered liberals when she cracked a joke about cross-dresser Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner, who was named Glamour magazine’s “woman of the year” on Thursday.
Jenner, 66, is one of eight honorees in the magazine’s 25th Anniversary December 2015 issue featuring actress Reese Witherspoon on the cover.
The “women of the year” honorees include ballerina Misty Copeland; fashionista Victoria Beckham, and the entire women’s U.S. national soccer team.
In addition to the obvious insult of naming a man “woman” of the year. Gold said, “I don’t like the fact that we cannot make fun of Caitlyn. People are so overly sensitive now.”
She added: “This is what I will say… ESPN gives her the [Arthur Ashe Courage Award]. But you know who should get the award? The woman who got her leg blown off at the Boston marathon who was a dancer. [Caitlyn] lived most of her life as a privileged white male. So don’t tell me that you know what it’s like to be a woman when you have lived your life as a privileged white male.”
Gold made the statements while attending the Tomorrow Is Tonight Gala benefiting Project ALS on Thursday.
