How Did Caitlyn Jenner React?

But now, she took to X to comment “Funny as hell” on the situation. Amidst a very serious debate going on this is a very unexpected reaction from her.
The restaurant also issued a statement that read, “We believe that political correctness has done more to silence rather than encourage important discussions that our society probably needs to have.”
“Based on the mind-boggling feedback, both positive and negative, people are having that discussion. It added that name calling and words like ‘transphobic, deviant, racist, homophobic bigot’ only divide us. After all, we are all part of the same race – the human race. Surely we can discuss this topic and many others without slapping hurtful labels on each other. Please know that we are here to discuss this and move forward as a community. Everyone is welcome here,” the full statement read.
