It looks like Spike TV didnt find Clint Eastwoods joke about Caitlyn Jenner during the Guys Choice Awards taping on Saturday very funny.
A rep for the male-centered network said the reference will be cut from the telecast.
We will remove the reference in the version that will air, David Schwarz, Spike TV senior vice president of communications, said in a statement.
During the taping, while presenting San Andreas star Dwayne Johnson with a special award, Eastwood compared Johnson to other athletes-turned-actors like Jim Brown and Caitlyn Somebody.
Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, made her debut as a woman on the cover of Vanity Fair last week. The gold-medal Olympians transition from male to female will also be featured in an upcoming E! docu-series, I Am Cait.
The situation isnt too different than a controversy that involved the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber in March. Several jokes about the late Paul Walker were made during the taping while Walkers Furious 7″ co-star Ludacris was on the stage, and Comedy Central cut them out of the official broadcast that aired in late March.

Clint Eastwood made a comment about the so-called woman with the vestigial testicular organ that remained unmolested in homage to its past athletic prowess and everybody goes into epileptic paroxysms of social dysfunction as a result.
Can you believe it? Clint made reference to the scrotum savant in the most benign way possible, referring to the sexually ambiguous former Bruce Jenner as Caitlyn ""Somebody" and these liberal cry babies go berserk enough to cut the comment out of the upcoming telecast.
I can think of a million ways to make reference to the woman bent on keeping the family jewels, none of them in any way offensive, used merely metaphorically, without it getting anyone upset. But refer to it as Caitlyn 'Something' and this prissy posse of pussSea crybabies go berserk over the mere mention of Jonas Cojones as, C. Something.
I am shocked at how fast it all happened. I figured back in 2008 that this was maybe 20 or 30 years away. They are way ahead of schedule.
It is a manmaid — like a mermaid, only instead of fish on the bottom and woman on the top it is man on the bottom and woman on the top.
Spike should change their name to “Pantywaist” channel.
Wasn’t Spike the MTV spinoff for men that brought back Ren & Stimpy and had them making gay “I’m the pitcher/catcher” jokes?
Mens TV, pbbbbbt.
sort of like the magazine
EXERCISE FOR MEN ONLY with the gay advertisements in the ...rear?...
So who IS the audience for Spike? A nerdier version of Bravo?
See how fast things can move when we have the first faggot in the oval office.
How’s that changie thing doin?
Biddygeezer - fitting because it’s 65 years old.
why did anyone think fundamentally transforming the United States, the greatest country on earth, was a good idea?
Is Caitlyn going to write about the Change of Life, no I mean menopause not the surgery...
It would have already gone through menopause. I wonder what that was like given that it was still trapped in a man’s body.
A local talk radio team had a hilarious exchange about this: The 1st guy said Caitlyn Jenner stands to make a lot of money over this...(to 2nd guy) so if for $100 million dollars all you had to do was tuck and roll your “junk” and get fake boobs, would you do it?
2nd guy in high pitched female voice: “uh, yeeees”
I ask who are these people paying $100,000,000 to see Bruchetta Jenner’s folly?
it seems to me that there is a way to undermine this with the liberal feminist millennial SJWs who are always on the lookout to be offended by something and who think homosexuals and transgender people are the very best people in the world.
this same group loves to prattle on about the so-called patriarchy. what if we explained to them that Bruce Jenner is benefiting from this patriarchy and they are helping him. not only is he NOT cutting off his twigs and berries, but at the ripe old age of 65, he decided one day to “become a female”. he never had to endure menstruation cramps or mood swings... he never had to endure menopause... he never had to earn less money for the same work... etc. you see where i’m going with this, right? every single bullet point that the SJWs despise, he has benefited from and now he’s decided to take the easiest route possible to become a “female”. let that stew in their tiny little brains for a while and i think they’ll stop proclaiming how great he is for what he’s doing. he’s just a mentally ill man who is being indulged in his mental illness all while never having to ever actually “walk the walk”.
at the very least, this might cause a bunch of those SJWs to shut their pieholes about about him/her/it already.
It sounds logical to me. But whenever something sounds logical there is a very good chance that the left will be unable and/or unwilling to comprehend it. The cool thing about being completely unattached to reality is that you can pick and choose things that completely defy logic, are completely contradictory — and that’s OK. Good, even.
I didn’t even think that joke was so much making fun of New Bruce as it was making fun of the hideously slobbery news overcoverage of Old Bruce becoming New Bruce. You’d have to be somewhere completely out of touch with TV, radio, print media and the Net not to know Bruce Jenner was transitioning to Caitlyn Jenner, and that everybody, or nearly everybody, working in those outlets thought that was awesome. (Or so the coverage would have you believe.) It’s one thing for some Twitterers not to get the difference. Any idiot can sign up for social-media accounts and many do. The producers, and the people who do news (even entertainment news) for a living should know better.
