One day after Caitlyn Jenner received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, the former athlete’s touching acceptance speech was still a hot topic.
While on the orange carpet at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards, HipHollywood caught up with a few professional athletes and Hollywood A listers to get their reaction to the monumental moment.
“Love,” Teyana Taylor told us. “I’m a Caitlyn fan.”
NBA player, Andre Drummond expressed that Jenner’s speech was an eye opener for him. “It was a learning experience not only for me but everyone in the arena,” he said. “I definitely think she should have won that award.”
Golden State Warriors player, Klay Thompson explained, “He was such great athlete growing up. My generation kind of forgets that. It takes a lot of courage for him to do that. That was powerful.”
And American Little League Baseball pitcher, Mo’ne Davis shared that she learned something new from the 65-year-old’s speech. “I didn’t know there were a lot of trans that actually kill themselves or got murdered. Just let people be them and don’t judge them.”
