Even during the Country Music Awards, the P.C. police and social justice warriors were out in force and didn’t miss a beat when the hosts of the show committed a cardinal sin – they told a joke.
Not just any joke, this particular joke was tucked in among several others during a quirky little monologue about how crazy this world has become. This joke, poked fun at Caitlyn Jenner.
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley sang a duet blasting everything from the popular “nay nay” dance to Donald Trump, and the peculiar “man bun” phenomenon, but if you listen very, very carefully you will hear a little jab at Jenner.

Paisley singing “Bruce Jenner’s a babe now” during the middle of the bit, was all it took for fanatic liberal heads to pulsate and nearly explode with untethered anguish. Twitter, of course, provided a means for much needed frustration ventilation.

So now it’s a “transphobic joke?” What about the “Trumphobic” joke, or where’s the action committee supporting guys with man buns? Don’t they have feelings too?
It really was just a little dig in a series of equal opportunity little digs. It’s too bad folks just can’t lighten up, as witnessed in the following tweets. (Warning for harsh language ahead.)
did the cma’s really say “bruce jenner’s a babe now”… hey, being trans isn’t a punchline?

#CMAawards the transgender community and the people within it aren’t a sideshow for y’all to make a joke out of. Inappropriate. Cruel. ?

But there were some folks who wanted to know why it was an insult to be called a “babe.”
@eerinchristie Are you aware that he is a woman now, and that it’s ok for straight men to admire women? Are you never happy?

@eerinchristie and if he thinks himself a babe, who are you to judge otherwise? Who’s hating now?

@RikkaPTX Can’t anyone take a joke anymore? #humorless
