Drama flared during the 20/20 interview between Diane Sawyer and Bruce Jenner on social media. While it was all love and support on camera, Twitter was heating up in real-time, and the adoration was fading fast.
Things got dicey when the piece in which Jenner confirmed that he is transgender, claimed that ABC had reached out to Kris Jenner for a comment, and she declined to make a statement. Jenner’s other two ex-wives gave “Go Bruce” comments to ABC, leaving Kris looking like the lone defector. No carefully crafted quip of gushing support was automatically interpreted as evil, and triggered the Twitterverse to question Jenner’s most recent ex’s feelings about his dramatic life decision. Perez Hilton kicked off the festivities, by tweeting about Kris’s alleged silence.
Kris Jenner shot back, and called foul, asserting that ABC had never requested a comment.
ABC rep, Brian Stelter responded, defending their claim, and clarifying and reiterating their assertion that Jenner’s input was indeed pursued.
Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries kept his opinion short, sweet and to the point.
Twitter is likely to reveal much as the Bruce Jenner transformation ride continues, and the now very public personal saga rolls on.
