Amir Khan has found himself in soup after addressing Caitlyn Jenner as Bruce during the ESPYs Awards held in Los Angeles earlier this week.

Although the British boxer, who was in attendance alongside his wife Faryal Makhdoom, got the name right in an Instagram video, his caption ‘Bruce Jenner’ on Snapchat didn’t go down well with fans, who labelled him ‘transphobic’.

“Amir Khan is not funny for calling Caitlin Jenner Bruce he demonstrates what a transphobic c*** he is. And I don’t even like Caitlin Jenner,” one comment read.

“Amir Khan calling Caitlyn Jenner ‘Bruce Jenner’ at the #ESPYS though!!! KILLED ME!” and “Still dying at the fact that amir khan called Kaitlyn Jenner BRUCE,” were some of the other comments.

Jenner, an American TV personality and a former Olympic champion in decathlon, underwent gender transition surgery in early 2017 and had her named changed from Bruce to Caitlyn.

Meanwhile, Khan, a former two-time world champion, is expected to get back to training as he is scheduled to fight Colombia’s Samuel Vargas come August 8 in Birmingham.
