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.
"Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters before hand, but want to act like they were all along," Burt tweeted.

In the two-hour special, Jenner's struggles in the media were documented — with late-night hosts joking about the reality star's gender and appearance. The former Olympian, 65, even admitted to contemplating suicide after news broke of his tracheal shave.
"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.'"
Thankfully Jenner found the will to live and told his story in the historic interview.
