Caitlyn Jenner made her first public appearance since her transition to accept the Arthur Ashe Courage Award on Wednesday at the ESPYs in Los Angeles.
She wasn’t all alone however, with a bunch of her Kardashian/Jenner children supporting her, all dressed in black.
Former Olympian Jenner joins recent recipients like Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL player, and sportscaster Robin Roberts, who survived breast cancer and the blood disease myelodysplastic syndrome.
Caitlyn told the crowd in her speech, “If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions – go ahead. Because the reality is… I can take it. But for the thousands of kids out there coming to terms with who they are, they shouldn’t have to take it.
Not everyone is happy with the award Caitlyn received. Director Peter Berg reposted a meme to Instagram following the ESPYs which compares a double amputee military vet to Caitlyn.
Berg co-signed on the meme with a simple comment — “Yup.”
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry also tweeted, “What exactly is ‘COURAGE’ these days?”
