The trans community has responded to former-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner’s announcement of her new chosen name with near unanimous approval. Many believe Jenner’s name choice to be a pointed jab at the women of the Kardashian/Jenner family, whose names all begin with a ‘K.’

Caitlyn Jenner’s perceived act of “throwing shade,” a term made popular by the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning, according to Jimmy Dolores, makes her “down as hell.” Dolores, who’s seen Paris Is Burning and its exploration of the New York City ball scene sixteen times, says he welcomes Jenner to the trans community after this public display of shade-throwing. “She must have done it deliberately; this is the kind of subtle yet fierce shade that will get you on RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Dolores said, adding wistfully, “If only she weren’t white, rich, and conservative, she’d be even cooler in our book.”
Kris Jenner stopped by Gaucho Mark’s headquarters for a brief interview and stated that she was not only offended by Caitlyn’s choice of spelling but that she was also disappointed in the timing of the announcement, which some say overshadowed news of daughter Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy. As for whether or not Kris Jenner believes Caitlyn intended to throw shade, Kris responded, “Huh? Throwing what? How do you throw shade?!”
