Jenny McCarthy under fire for 'transphobic' joke

6/18/2014

Model/actress Jenny Mccarthy is under fire after posting a joke about transgender people online while poking fun at a scandal surrounding Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend Casper Smart. The On the Floor hitmaker's dancer beau has been at the centre of controversy after reportedly cheating on his superstar girlfriend with a transgender bikini model. On Tuesday (03Jun14), McCarthy decided to weigh in on the rumours, and took to Twitter.com to write, "Did Jennifer Lopez's boyfriend cheat on her with a transsexual model? I heard JLo gave him an ultimatum: 'it's either me or her/him'" The TV personality soon deleted the tweet after receiving a barrage of responses criticising her for the joke. Author Kelly Oxford wrote, "Hey @JennyMcCarthy your last tweet was really transphobic. I'm a 'learn and be better' type, so I thought I'd let you know. PEACE." McCarthy has yet to comment on the furore.
