Caitlyn Jenner took the ESPY Awards stage with grace, honor and a lot of family support, basically all his kids and step-kids (minus Rob).”The last few months have been a whirlwind of so many different experiences and emotions, but to tell you the truth, it seems like every time I turn around in life, I’m putting myself in these high pressure situations, competing in the games, raising a family. But I’ve never felt more pressure than I ever have felt in my life than over the last couple of months — picking out this outfit. “
“OK girls? I get it. You got to get the shoes, the hair, the makeup, the whole process, it was exhausting. And next — the fashion police. Please be kind on me, I’m new at this,” Jenner told the crowd as he accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award for courage.
You could see his children, especially daughter Kendall and Kylie visibly tearful as their father explained his journey. After the inspiration speech, Jenner spoke with Robin Roberts adding the speech wasn’t easy. ” “I am just great to be in a position where myself and my family have been so supportive of what is happening,” Jenner told ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “You know, my kids are great.”
But not everyone was applauding the ESPY honor. Hollywood talent manager, Jessica Steindorff, one of those injured in the February that claimed one life was not too thrilled telling ET, “I find it difficult to understand how the culture we live in can honor a person who is responsible for taking a life and injuring several others with both an award and a reality show. For an individual who is such a positive role model in many aspects of her life, Caitlyn has failed to do the right thing and take responsibility for her actions. I would hope that someone who seems to greatly value the importance of human existence would be more sensitive to the fact that she ended another person’s life. Sadly, we are living in a tabloid society.”
