Kylie Jenner took to Instagram on Friday afternoon to promote her father, Bruce Jenner’s upcoming interview with Diane Sawyer. But what might’ve been meant as a harmless way to make sure people tune in for tonight’s show, has been misconstrued as serious shade.

In the post, the 17-year-old used a photo of Bruce sporting a white crop top and hot pants aka daisy dukes.

“daddy throwback. #Tonight #DianeSawyer #ABC #love,” Kylie captioned the photo.

The image, which is actually from an old movie Jenner did called Can’t Stop the Music, has lead social media fans to comment about her father’s sexuality and to suggest that Kylie is poking fun at the 65-year-old’s alleged transition from man to woman.

“Lmao well she put him on blast,” an IG user wrote.

“Dressed like a girl to me,” one user wrote.

“They’re dad been dressed like the b*tch that he is,” someone else mentioned.

“He been gay from the beginning,” a fan commented.

Sound off: Do you think Kylie was being insensitive by posting this image?

Be sure to tune in for Jenner’s interview tonight at 9 p.m. on ABC.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Published

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
