A conversation between Piers Morgan and Caitlyn Jenner got tense on an upcoming episode of Morgan’s “Life Stories”.
Morgan, 52, asked the former Olympian about her transition: “How does your physique compare now to what it was like then? Obviously certain areas, we know.”
But the interviewer’s question did not sit well with Jenner. “You made a comment there and that’s why you would get in trouble, OK? You just said ‘Oh, certain areas.’ That to a trans person is disrespectful,” said Jenner.
“Is it really? Why?” asked Morgan in the clip obtained by DailyMail. Jenner explained, “You don’t make a joke about that because it’s not funny, it’s life.”
Morgan continued to make light of the situation, quipping, “Can’t life be funny?”
“I take that very seriously and so out of respect for myself and the community, it’s not something that you joke about,” insisted Jenner. “People die over this issue. It’s not a joke.”
The discussion between Morgan and Jenner is scheduled to air on Jan. 4.
