D.L. Hughley doesn't think that Caitlyn Jenner deserved to win the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPYS. Not one bit. The comedian insulted the former Olympian when he was stopped by TMZ cameras in NYC on Friday, July 17.
"[Arthur Ashe] fought AIDS with dignity and honor and Caitlyn Jenner put on a dress. I don't think it's the same thing," Hughley, 52, said. "I don't think that would have been my choice but I'm not on the ESPYS. I think Arthur Ashe and Caitlyn Jenner have little in common."
During the cringeworthy interview, the Original Kings of Comedy star also took a jab at Jenner's looks.
"She is a beautiful woman, isn't she?" one cameraman asked.
"No," Hughley sniped back. "In a Miss Doubtfire kind of way. Stop it. Stop it."
He continued: "This week we had the media telling us that Caitlyn Jenner was beautiful and that Serena Williams looked like a man. That was a little weird to me. The man looks like a woman and the woman looks like a man? That's ridiculous. I think Serena is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen on a tennis court and Bruce Jenner looks like every P.E. teacher I've ever had."
But it didn't end there. Hughley also tweeted side-by-side photos of Jenner, 65, and Mrs. Doubtfire, played by the late Robin Williams in 1993.
"Somebody tell me I'm wrong. #TeamDL," the actor wrote. He retweeted a follower: "Hughley is too real, wish more celebs spoke their full minds."
Needless to say, other people were not as happy. "I've now unfollowed on FB & Twitter. I don't get your bullying. Always thought you'd support people living their true selves," one tweeter wrote. A second noted: "Something tells me @RealDLHughley is a Real DL cross dresser or something cuz why is he bullying @Caitlyn_Jenner?"
