#CallMeCaitlyn: Celebs react on Twitter to Caitlyn Jenner
Looks like Kim Kardashian isn’t the only one who can break the internet.
Vanity Fair released its July cover on Monday, and introduced Caitlyn Jenner to the world. Almost immediately, #CallMeCaitlyn started to trend.
The former Olympic athlete, previously known as Bruce, came out as transgender in April in an interview with Diane Sawyer, but the Vanity Fair cover marks the first time she has spoken publicly since completing gender transition. In the article, Jenner discusses her transition in-depth, talking about accidentally using the name “Bruce” out of habit and her doubts over facial feminization surgery. “I’m not doing this to be interesting. I’m doing this to live,” Jenner tells interviewer Buzz Bissinger.
Jenner herself joined social media on Monday, and she has already racked up hundreds of thousands of followers (and counting) in the few hours she’s been on Twitter.
Once Vanity Fair shared the cover on Twitter, the Jenner and Kardashian family weighed in immediately, but dozens of other celebrities also tweeted their support for Jenner. We’ve rounded up some of the many, many declarations of admiration and encouragement:
