LOS ANGELES - Ever try to be funny and have your joke fall flat? Yeah, well maybe Jamie Foxx can relate. When Jamie tweeted things were gonna get crazy at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, we didn't quite know what to expect.

But the host ended up digging himself into a real foxhole after this Bruce Jenner joke on Sunday.

"We got Bruce Jenner will be here doing some musical performances. He's doing a 'His & Her' duet all by himself," said Foxx during his opening monologue.

Then there was this: "I'm just busting your [bleep] while I still can," said Foxx.

But some folks weren't laughing. Immediately after the joke, tweets in support of Jenner's reported transition flooded the Twitterverse.

Now, some folks think Jamie Foxx's joke transitioned him from funny man to transphobic.

But when did we become sensitive to a bad punchline? After all, this is comedy. Whatever happened to sticks and stones may break my bones?
