Kris Humphries apologises for insensitive Bruce Jenner tweet

2015-04-28 07:23

Los Angeles - Kris Humphries has apologised for a tweet he sent regarding Bruce Jenner's gender transition.

Bruce, 65, announced his decision to become a woman during a tell-all interview with ABC's Diane Sawyer and while the show was being broadcast, Kris took to Twitter to send a vague message.

Subsequently, the basketball player, who was married to Kim Kardashian West for only 72 days, was subjected to a torrent of abuse from online users, many of whom accused him of being insensitive and ignorant.

However, Kris has since insisted that was never his intention and his original tweet was badly misinterpreted.

Meanwhile, Bruce's 17-year-old daughter Kylie Jenner has taken to Twitter to declare her support for her dad.

During the interview, Bruce said that "for all intents and purposes, I'm a woman".

He added: "have the soul of a female and my brain in much more female than it is male, as of now I have all the male parts." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
