The Comedy Central Roast - It's the most wonderful time of the year, isn't it?
There's nothing quite as good as watching a load of celebrities get completely torn apart by a panel of comedians, but it gets even better when it's a Kardashian or a Jenner. Sorry, not sorry.
Alec Baldwin is the latest star (or victim?) of the Comedy Central Roast, though the panel seemed a little distracted by the presence of Caitlyn Jenner as a star guest. And Blake Griffin, Kendall Jenner's ex-boyfriend, appropriately directed a lot of his gags at Caitlyn. Much to the relief of Alec, I can imagine...
Anyway, things got awkward when Blake poked fun at Caitlyn's infamous gender transition by thanking her for "giving her daughter daddy issues." Yikes.
Keep scrolling to watch his full gag, and to see Caitlyn's frosty response to the crude joke.
We all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.
via: GettyRemember? When the gold-medal-winning Olympian and husband to Kris Jenner, Bruce Jenner announced that he would be transitioning into a woman back in 2015?
Bruce Jenner became a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is the Keeping up with the Kardashian's.
via: GettyHe came into Kris' life after the death of her first husband, attorney, Robert Kardashian. He had 2 children with Kris (Kendal, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant father figure to all the Kardashian sisters.
So, understandably, the world was shocked when he transitioned into Caitlyn.And, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she came out on the cover of Vanity Fair. People marveled at the impressive transformation, which had completely eliminated any traces of the previous Bruce Jenner. She underwent her final operation - the irreversible sex-reassignment surgery - in 2017, officially marking the death of Bruce, and the birth of Caitlyn.
And she couldn't be happier.Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: "I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap."
Caitlyn insists that she is a nicer person than Bruce ever was.
Yet, despite Caitlyn being happier and more popular than ever...Kendall and Kylie. For the 2 girls, the birth of Caitlyn meant the loss of their dad as they knew him. "My dad says it herself sometimes, it's kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is," Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn's transition. "My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad -- that's the last little piece of dad I've got."
Though Kendall insists that she'd known about her dad's gender identity for years.
However, both Kendall and Kylie have reportedly distanced themselves from their dad.In addition to Kris Jenner and the other Kardashian sisters cutting ties with Caitlyn Jenner after the release of her memoir, The Secrets of My Life, the youngest Jenner sisters soon found themselves growing distant from their father.
There has been a noticeable strain in Caitlyn's relationship with her daughters.And Kendall has remained loyal to her mom, Kris, during her parents' feud. “Kendall is loyal to Kris[Jenner] and has very little to do with her dad. The more time that has passed, the more she feels Caitlyn has let her down with the things she has said and with her actions," a source shared with E! News back in 2017.
And now, to add even more fuel to the fire...
via: GettyKendall's ex-boyfriend and NBA star, Blake Griffin, has decided to have his own little jibe at their damaged father-daughter relationship.
Kendall and Blake dated just after Caitlyn's transition.
via: GettyIn the July of 2017, the NBA player broke up with his fiancée, and the mother of his kids, Brynn Cameron, and was swiftly spotted with Kendall shortly after.
They were spotted several times together.But things began to sour when Brynn filed a child support lawsuit against Blake, in which she partially blamed Kendall for their split. Per court docs: “Griffin had no problem trading Brynn Cameron, his former fiancée and the mother of his two children, for reality television star Kendall Jenner...Griffin cared more about the glamour of dating a Hollywood celebrity than the day-to-day responsibilities of being a father and family man." Good lord. Following the messy lawsuit, their relationship came to an end when Blake moved to Detroit in 2018.
Yet, despite their relationship ending civilly last year...
via: YoutubeGriffin just couldn't resist squeezing that Kardashian-Jenner flannel completely dry. During the Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin, Griffin saw his opportunity and seized it... By taking to the podium to rip Caitlyn to shreds.
He took no prisoners.
via: YoutubeHe began by poking fun at a typical Kardashian-Jenner stereotype... “Caitlyn completed her gender reassignment in 2017, finally confirming that no one in that family wants a white d*ck."
For those who missed it...
via: YoutubeThis gag was an obvious reference to how the vast majority of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters' boyfriends are black. Ouch. Though Caitlyn did laugh and give a standing ovation, so she must agree with him on some level.
But he didn't stop there.
via: YoutubeThen Blake added, “Caitlyn's p*ssy is so young, Alec just called her a rude thoughtless little pig," which is a joke about how Alec called his daughter, Ireland Baldwin, exactly that in an infamous voicemail from 2007. Okay, that one must have hurt.
And then, there was the big one.
via: YoutubeThe one you're all here for, folks! He began by genuinely thanking Caitlyn for her bravery with her transition, and the doors she has opened for other trans people. So far, so good, right? However, he then went on to say: "On behalf of the entire NBA and half of the rappers on the Billboard charts, I want to thank you for giving your daughters their daddy issues."
Somebody pass Caitlyn the suncream, because she just got burnt.
via: YoutubeThough she initially laughed and clapped along with the brutal joke, she responded with a slightly frosty remark: "I’m not perfect. I’m a person trying to figure out my life, just like everyone else. All I want is for future generations of transgender people to know that if I can find the courage to be who I am, then you can too. If you have a problem with that, then you can suck my d*ck. If you can find it!"
