Presenter Billy Bush, 51, has received heavy criticism after once again making a controversial and crude remark – this time against influencer and media mogul Kendall Jenner (27).
NBC fired the 51-year-old anchor after appearing in the infamous Access Hollywood tape with Donald Trump – in which the then-president bragged about sexually assaulting women.
After being fired from NBC, the presenter was seen on the entertainment show ‘Extra’ – and in a leaked audio clip from the back room on Oct. 31, 2022, the 51-year-old can be heard joking about Jenner’s ‘Toy Story’ – Halloween costume inspired.
– Kendall was dressed as Jesse — and believe me, there were a lot of “woodies” (a pun on the male erection and main character of the movie Woody, journal.anm), the host joked.
According to the site, this remark was supposed to make others in the room laugh The Daily Beast, All of them were producers.
Allows for creative flexibility
It was not known who leaked the audio recording to the press, but according to the site Page six The leak must be “unauthorized”.
As with many forms of production in the entertainment industry, the series’ creative process allows flexibility in experimenting with different jokes. Sometimes things go wrong — and, unfortunately, some of them end up on the cutting room floor — including comments that might be too violent to air on broadcast television, a Telepictures communications officer told the site.
One source adds that Bush was “working through the material in the normal creative process for the series” and that there was no malice behind the comment.
Jenner’s representative has yet to respond to inquiries from several media outlets who have covered the case.
