"If a Kardashian breaks wind in a public place, it's public knowledge," said Morgan. "Let's be real -- they are a living, breathing, walking, talking reality show."
And just as any Kardashian is capable of inspiring cruel responses from all corners, comments about Jenner's appearance have often been harsh.
"I have no inside knowledge of what Bruce is going through, but it really was distressing to me that there was so little sympathy towards him and so much judgment," said PR expert Howard Bragman of Reputation.com, who worked with Chaz Bono during his gender transition. Bragman came to Bruce’s defense on Facebook, responding to the negative comments online.
"It's no wonder that those with gender dysmorphia have psychological issues, disproportionate suicide rates and myriad societal issues," Bragman posted to Facebook. "It's not funny and it's not a punch line -- [this is] a human being trying to be true to their own self and we could all use a time out from snide remarks."
Kris Jenner, Bruce's wife of 23 years, filed for divorce from Bruce in September, almost a year after the couple first announced their separation.
When asked about Bruce's appearance in January, Kris Jenner told ET, "Ninety-nine percent of the stuff in the tabloids is made up."
