Jerry Springer Has “Just Been Educated,” Will No Longer Say “Tranny”

Babes For Boobs: Live Bachelor Auction Benefiting The Los Angeles County Affiliate Of Susan G. KomenJerry Springer, longtime champion of using the term “tranny” (or, as he spells it, “trannie”) in the most incredibly offensive manner, has vowed to remove the term from his vocabulary completely.

The 70-year-old daytime tabloid talk show presenter, who during the course of his career has aired specials on “transexual cravings,” “tranny take downs,” and one in which “trannies tell all,” told TMZ this week that he’s through with using the T-word.

Apparently some LGBT groups took him to task over a recent episode entitled “Trannies Twerk It Out”.

“I’ve just been educated,” Springer told TMZ Live. “I won’t use that term. I honestly had no idea that you’re not supposed to use that term. so now we’ll find another term to use.”

Yes, a new term. That’s what you need, Jerry. That’s what your program needs.

Here’s the episode that inspired the change:
