Kris Humphries slammed for nasty tweet about Bruce Jenner

It was a huge moment for Bruce Jenner last night, as he opened up about his gender transition during an interview with Diane Sawyer.

While his family, a host of celebrities, and members of the public took to social media in their droves to send their support to the former Olympic medallist, there was one person who could not do the same – Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, Kris Humphries.

The basketball player, who was married to Kim for 72 days back in 2011, made his feelings known as he tweeted: “Man, I’m glad I got out when I did.”

Social media has largely reacted with shock and disgust at Humphries’ words, taking to their Twitter accounts to criticise the sports star for his apparent insensitivity.

“Yep you are the a**hole of the day and I can’t stand the Kardashians,” wrote one Twitter user. Meanwhile, another commented: “You’re pathetic to say that.”

On a more positive note however, Bruce will no doubt be bowled over by the support he received from stars such as Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres and Jennifer Lopez.

“Bruce Jenner is a beautiful, brave human being. Sending him lots of love. He’s saving lives and opening minds tonight,” wrote Ellen.

Perhaps Kris might want to rethink leaving that tweet up on his account.
