Backlash Forces a Company to Take Down ‘Transphobic’ Bruce Jenner Billboard

Know how to make sure you’re never the butt of any jokes? Become transgendered! It’s worked like a charm for Bruce Jenner, and after a company poked fun at him on a billboard, the backlash forced them to remove it.

Following a backlash from New Zealand’s transgender community, an Auckland-based company has taken down a Christmas-themed Bruce Jenner billboard.

The billboard, which was placed in the Auckland suburb of East Tamaki, featured a photo of post-gender transition Jenner in a Santa hat with a slogan that read, “I hope your sack is fuller than mine this Christmas. Merry Christmas from Cranium.”

The image was taken from Jenner’s June Vanity Fair photoshoot and photoshopped to include the Santa hat.

A signage company called Cranium was behind the billboard, the New Zealand Herald reports.

The billboard angered members of New Zealand’s transgender community who said it was “transphobic” and risked marginalizing the transgendered.

After hearing the complaints, Cranium director Phillip Garratt agreed to remove the sign and offered a $1,000 donation to the LGBT group Rainbow Youth.

Look, this isn’t some random transgendered person — this is the patriarch of the biggest famewhoring family on the planet. If anyone is open for mocking, it’s the Kardashian/Jenner clan, and being transgender does not exempt him from that.
