'In Touch' Magazine Photoshops Makeup on Bruce Jenner, Sparks Outrage
By Antoinette Bueno
InTouch Weekly kicked off the new year with an offensive cover that was sure to get the Internet riled.
This week's cover features 65-year-old Bruce Jenner photoshopped to appear like he's wearing makeup and woman's clothing with the headline "Bruce's Story: My Life As a Woman."
Not surprisingly, the image has sparked plenty of outrage, considering it's not even a real photograph of Bruce. BuzzFeed tracked down the real 2013 image of Dynasty actress Stephanie Beacham on which the tabloid superimposed the former Olympian's face.
InTouch further claims that Bruce plans to come out this year about transitioning on the cover of LGBT magazine The Advocate. However, the magazine has already shut down that report.
"They have no insider source with knowledge of The Advocate’s planned coverage," Matthew Breen, editor in chief of The Advocate said on the magazine's site, adding that he finds the photoshopped cover "distressing."
Kris talked to ET about Bruce's changing appearance in October.
"They've been saying that since 1976," she said candidly. "For me, that's not my experience with Bruce. He's a great guy. I love him. I don't know what he’s going through right now. I think he’s just very happy and I think every time he makes a change in his life -- whether it's emotional or physical or whatever he's doing -- somebody's going to comment on whatever look you have going on for the day."
