InTouch Weekly Photoshopped Bruce Jenner As A Woman On Their Cover
On the cover of the latest issue of InTouch Weekly, Bruce Jenner is photoshopped with makeup and women’s clothes with the headline “Bruce’s Story: My Life As A Woman.” Jenner has never commented publicly about the changes in his appearance, but that has not stopped the gossip press from insisting that Jenner is transgender and in the process of coming out as a trans woman. Though the InTouch story claims that the former Olympian will come out in a future issue of The Advocate, that publication issued a statement refuting that information. “They have no insider source with knowledge of The Advocate’s planned coverage,” Matthew Breen, editor in chief of The Advocate, said, adding that the photoshopped cover is “distressing.” InTouch is facing a public backlash for their mockery of transgender people.
