Kris Jenner wasn’t at the ESPY Awards on Wednesday when Caitlyn Jenner accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, but she only had nice things to say about her ex’s speech.
“I think it was amazing and very brave,” Kris told Us Weekly on Thursday at the Amazon Summer Soiree in Los Angeles. “I think she looked beautiful.”
“Trans people deserve something vital. They deserve your respect,” she said. “And from that respect comes a more compassionate community, a more empathetic society and a better world for all of us.”
The former athlete first came out as transgender in an interview with Diane Sawyer in April and formally introduced herself as Caitlyn to the world this past June with a 22-page Vanity Fair cover story.
After learning that her ex was planning to transition, Kris admitted that she felt as though she had to “mourn” the person she was married to for more than two decades. Since then, the reality star has been publicly supportive of Caitlyn and her journey.
In June, the 59-year-old finally opened up about her ex’s Vanity Fair cover telling Extra, “I think it’s amazing. I think that someone following their dream is truly inspirational to a lot of people … you have to do what makes you happy.”
She went on to add that the cover is “beautiful.”
