He Made Lewd Remarks On Kendall Jenner
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bush made some lewd remarks about Kendall Jenner in 2022 that have been leaked in the media. In an unaired segment, Bush commented on Kendall’s Halloween costume as Jessie from the ‘Toy Story’ franchise.
In the audio, Bush says: “Kendall goes as Jessie, and believe me, there were a lot of woodies.” The joke was in reference to the character of cowboy Woody, voiced by Tom Hanks in the franchise.
Despite the backlash, the producer of the news magazine backed Bush. In a statement, they said: “As with many forms of production in the entertainment industry, the show’s creative process allows the flexibility to try different jokes and banter. In the end, some material lands on the cutting room floor, including remarks that may be too edgy to air on broadcast television.”
