Reality TV star Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kris Humphries has apologised for a tweet he sent regarding former father-in-law Bruce Jenner’s gender transition.

Bruce, 65, announced his decision to become a woman during a tell-all interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and while the show was being broadcast, Humphries took to Twitter to send a vague, message, reported Hollywood Life.

The 30-year-old star posted, “Man, I’m glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou.”

Subsequently, the basketball player, who was married to Kim from 2011 until 2013, was subjected to a torrent of abuse from online users, many of whom accused him of being insensitive and ignorant.
