Steve Harvey Doesn’t Get Bruce Jenner’s Transition

Since Bruce Jenner’s sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer last week, the former Olympian has been met with lots of support from celebrities and fans. However, everyone can’t wrap their mind around Jenner telling the world he’s a now woman.

While on the red carpet for the Daytime Emmy Awards, Steve Harvey talked to Hip Hollywood about his thoughts on Jenner’s interview.

“I mean, look, everybody says it’s the bravest thing they’ve ever seen, so that’s the politically correct thing to say,” said Harvey.

“I can’t wrap my mind around it at all. Zero! I have no concept of what that means,” Harvey explains. Nothing negative. He has every right to live his life the way he wants to.”

He continues, “I can’t come in my house and make that announcement to my wife, to my children. Nothing.”

Harvey also praised Sawyer for her interviewing skills. “She covered it all.”

He also added, “My wife told me I couldn’t do the interview. She said, ‘Your faces are too expressive.’”

So I have questions.

Could Harvey’s inability to fathom Jenner’s choice be a little homophobic? Perhaps it’s because he’s from a different generation? But so is Jenner, who will be 65 this year. Harvey turned 58 in January.

Jenner is beyond brave to come out to the world and embrace his female identity. He feels free now and I applaud him!
