Jenny McCarthy of TV’s The View posts transphobic ‘her/him’ joke on Twitter
04 June 2014

Jenny McCarthy, one of the co-hosts of the The View, posted a transphobic joke on Twitter Tuesday (3 June).

The joke had to do with the rumor that Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend, Casper Smart, may have cheated on her with a bikini model who happens to be transgender.

McCarthy quickly deleted the without explanation or apology.

Since followers were quick to take screen shots of the tweet, it spread quickly even after being deleted.

It read: ‘Did Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend cheat with a transsexual model? I heard JLo gave him an ultimatum: "It’s either me of her/him!"’
