Hip-hop reacts to the new Vanity Fair cover showing Caitlyn Jenner.
The Kardashian/Jenner clan truly broke the Internet yesterday (June 1). Kim and Kanye announced their second child, only to be overshadowed by even bigger news, as Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner) officially presented herself to the world by appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair.
We had known about Jenner's transformation into womanhood for a couple of months now, but with the preview of her upcoming Vanity Fair cover, she officially introduced herself as Caitlyn. With the announcement, the former Olympic world record holder went on to set a new record: Becoming the fastest Twitter account to reach 1 million followers, beating the previous record set by Barack Obama, who tweeted his support for Jenner's courage.
Also voicing their support were certain members of the hip-hop world, such as Azealia Banks, Frank Ocean, and each of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters-- they're all members of the community by now, right?
Other typically outspoken personalities also took the time to chime in on Caitlyn's transformation. Timbaland let us know he's still gonna refer to Caitlyn as Bruce, 50 Cent's got jokes, and Plies... well, we don't really know what Plies said. As expected, Charlemagne tha God went on an extended rant, though we gotta give him credit for his "King Kylie" joke.
See all of the social media responses below, and please share your own opinions in the comments.
Frank Ocean took his Tumblr page to write:
Just give Bruce his respect and post this as a Women Crush Wednesday and not a Man Crush Monday. https://t.co/UFU95Cq4XW— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) June 1, 2015
Pastors going to catch hell trying to explain Bruce Jenner's transformation. Not a scripture in the Bible can explain it.— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) June 1, 2015

People will use the Bible to tell you why you may be going to hell but when it comes to their own sins it's "Thou Shall Not Judge."— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) June 2, 2015
If I did believe in heaven or hell I would make sure I was getting in heaven before I tell someone they not.— Charlamagne Tha God (@cthagod) June 2, 2015

Caitlyn Looks more Kunt and much younger than Kris Jenner. That's what she gets for trying to change her name back to Kardashian that time!— AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) June 1, 2015
