Ellen DeGeneres said people making fun of Bruce Jenner were “poo-poo heads”.

Bruce Jenner, Olympic gold medal winner and reality TV star recently came out as trans in an interview with Diane Sawyer.

Ellen tweeted her support at the time, saying Jenner was a “beautiful, brave human being”.

On her show last week she said: “It was an amazing interview, it’s very hard to reveal what you’ve been hiding.

“I know there’s been a lot of jokes and I think when people feel uncomfortable or they don’t understand something that’s how they deal with it, they make jokes, it’s very childish and I think those people are poo poo heads.

“Even if you don’t understand it, you’ve got to admire someone who is willing to risk ridicule and tell the truth.

“Everyone has something that makes them feel different and like they don’t belong

“I hope we can all learn to co-exist and stop judging each other. I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Less judging, more dancing.”
