It looks as though Caitlyn Jenner is totally okay with the Halloween costume which many on social media had called transphobic.
In an interview with Today’s Matt Lauer he asked the 65-year-old former Olympian,
“When you hear that there are companies out there that want to do Caitlyn Jenner costumes for Halloween from the Vanity Fair cover, are you in on the joke or do you think it’s offensive?
“I’m in on the joke. I don’t think it’s offensive at all.”
“I know the community does and they’ve gotten a lot of criticism for doing it. I think it’s great.”
She went on to say:
“They could have a better looking outfit for him [the model], you know? I mean, that was a serious bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair, you know?”
A petition which called the costume transphobic has attracted over 16,000 signatures to get the costume removed from retailers.
