Transgender community slams Bruce Jenner for using transition to sell TV shows

The 65-year-old TV personality is angling to roll his announcement out on season 10 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and then on his own documentary series.

Bruce Jenner, who has already decided to go for a sex-change, seems to have pissed off the transgender community.

The transgender community feels that the former Olympian is more interested in money than setting an example, after Jenner announced that he is becoming a woman on a TV show, TMZ.com reported.

Zoey Tur, a leader in the L.A. transgender community, said that there’s a lot of anger because they have no real role models now and here is a world class athlete who could literally save lives by way of example but is now deep in the TV game, exploiting the announcement. Tur added that this is a civil rights battle and this is not about selling TV shows.
