VIA| NYPD police officer Moira Smith was one of the brave heroes who died saving lives on 9/11. After her tragic death, Glamour magazine honored her with the Woman of the Year award.
The same award that Caitlyn Jenner scored.
When Smith’s widower, James, found out Jenner would be honored with the same award as his wife, he was disgusted– so disgusted that he literally sent the award back with a scathing letter. He said it was “insulting” to his beloved wife.
The retired officer said he’d originally been ‘honored’ to accept the award for his wife just a month after Moira’s death in 2001, but said awarding the Kardashian reality show star was a ‘slap in the face to the memory of our hero.’
‘I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year,’ Smith wrote.
‘I find it insulting to Moira Smith’s memory, and the memory of other heroic women who have earned this award.
‘Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?
‘At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police officers and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases. Is this the best you could do?’
I’m still asking that same question.
Glamour responded in the most PC way possible, telling the New York Post, “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.”
