Burt wants some people to get off Bruce's bandwagon. Bruce Jenner's eldest son, 36, took to Twitter on Saturday, April 25 — the day after his historic Diane Sawyer interview — to call out those who have latched onto his father's recent popularity after months of mockery.

"That night, I thought, 'It's over.' I was walking up and down this hall back and forth all night long. Heart pounding," Jenner told Sawyer. "I thought, 'Wouldn't the easiest thing to do right now is go in the other room, get a gun. Pain is over. Done. Go to a better place.'"
