Jerry Springer will finally ban the word “tranny” from his show after recent backlash after a show with the headline “Trannies Twerk it Out” in which transmen revealed to “straight” men that they were actually transgender. The hour show was difficult to watch for anyone who is aware of trans issues. From Springer telling the transwomen that they tricked the men to the men trying to attack the women (and many succeeding). While not the first episode to exploit the trans community, this episode was enough for LGBT-rights groups to reach out to Springer. And Springer quickly apologized on TMZ:

The term tranny? I’ve just been educated. I won’t use that term. I mean I honestly had no idea that you’re not supposed to use that term so now we’ll find another term to use. Yeah, but I didn’t know that it was offensive to them (the transgender community) and I’m not interested in offending people. So obviously I’ll just change the term — there’s no argument there.”

If the use of the word “tranny” was the only thing wrong in this segment, we must seriously reevaluate our society.
