Husband of 9/11 Hero James Smith Returns Award After Caitlyn Jenner Is Honored

Kandywandy - 20:23:00




James Smith on October 29th, 2001 accepted an award on behalf of his late wife Police Officer Moira Smith for the Glamour Magazine ‘Woman of the Year Award’. James wrote in his post. “Moira was
killed on September 11th, 2001 while rescuing thousands from the World Trade Center.
James was offended that the Olympian — whom he referred to as Bruce Jenner — was among the 2015 award recipients.


James noted that he would be returning his wife’s award, calling it a “slap in the face to the memory of our Hero.” Also because he found it insulting to Moira Smith’s memory, and the memory of other heroic women who have earned this award
Jenner herself has not spoken out about the controversy, but it’s not the first she’s faced in recent days.
A spokeswoman for Glamour told the New York Post in a statement: “We were proud to honor his wife … in 2001, and we stand by our decision to honor Caitlyn Jenner. Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards recognize women with a variety of backgrounds and experiences.
