    The iHeartRadio Music Awards got off to a bumpy start Sunday night, as host Jamie Foxx went after Bruce Jenner — and his alleged transition into a woman — in his opening monologue.

    "We have some groundbreaking performances here, too, tonight. We got Bruce Jenner, who will be here doing some musical performances. He's doing a his-and-her duet all by himself."

    Howard mocked Chaz.
    Now he is mocking Bruce Jenner.
    But somehow gets a pass.

    Just the fact that the joke was made is bad enough these days.
