If there’s one thing you should know about the Kardashians and Jenners, if you mess with one, you mess with the whole lot (excluding their fans). Jamie Foxx is learning this the hard way as he gets slammed by Burt Jenner because of his ‘joke’ on Bruce Jenner’s alleged transition.

During the opening of the iHeart Radio Music Awards on Sunday, March 29, host Jamie Foxx laughingly said, “Bruce Jenner will be doing a ‘his and her’ duet performance all by himself. I’m just bustin’ your balls while I still can,” while a photo of Bruce Jenner was flashed on the screen behind him. Since then, Foxx has been the target of scrutiny by many fans of the Kardashian-Jenner family.

For Bruce’s family, this is definitely no laughing matter as well. TMZ reports that they spotted Bruce’s eldest son (with his first wife Chrystie Crownover) Burt Jenner arriving at LAX on Monday, March 30. Not surprisingly, he was asked about his reaction to Foxx’s bash about his dad.

“I think he is just copying Kevin Hart because Kevin Hart is taking all of his movie opportunities. He’s copying him; the man is on a roll. And Jamie Foxx is on the way down so you’ve gotta keep your mojo going, he’s gotta copy what’s working,” Burt said.

Wow, talk about a major diss there!

In addition to that, Burt mentioned Kevin Hart who talked about Bruce’s alleged transition at ‘The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber’. Here, Burt became the protective brother, as his sister Kendall was also in the audience that night.  He said that Hart was lucky he wasn’t anywhere near the place or he would’ve charged at him on the stage. “You can make jokes about my dad all you want but you can’t make jokes in front of my sister… if security would have gotten to me, I would have thrown something at [you],” he added.

Even though there is still no official confirmation regarding Bruce’s alleged transition, the mere fact that he still isn’t talking is keeping the rumour alive. And it seems other celebrities are taking it in too. But fortunately for Bruce Jenner, his family’s got his back.
