Caitlyn Jenner seemingly asks Elon Musk for legal help after claiming Disney and Bob Iger discriminated against her
  • Caitlyn Jenner has asked Elon Musk for legal help after claiming Disney discriminated against her.

  • Jenner says she was removed from "The Kardashians" when the show moved to Hulu.

  • The reality star also criticized Disney CEO Bob Iger in earlier social-media posts.

Caitlyn Jenner asked Elon Musk for legal help on X (formerly known as Twitter) after claiming that Disney and Bob Iger discriminated against her.

Jenner starred in "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" since its debut in 2007 and appeared in almost 20 seasons of the show. But she wasn't involved when it was subsequently reworked into "The Kardashians" for Hulu in 2022.

On Wednesday, the reality star responded to Musk's X post offering legal support to anyone who had been discriminated against by Disney or other companies it owns, which include Marvel, ESPN, and Hulu.

Jenner wrote: "Hulu (Disney subsidiary) never put me on my family's show — I had been on since day 1 — when it switched from E!"

Musk had not publicly responded to Jenner as of Thursday morning.

In January, Jenner made similar comments when conservative political consultant Richard Grenell criticized Disney for being "partisan" in a post on X. In her response to Grenell, the reality star also took aim at CEO Bob Iger.

"I wonder if that's why they fired me from my family's reality show when it switched over to Hulu (@Disney), from E!. I must not be woke enough," Jenner said. "Too bad… I remember when Bob Iger was a young, hard working, valet, carrying my bags, for me right after I won the Olympics."

She also said that Iger had "no sense of loyalty" to her after a 20/20 special about her transitioning from a man to a woman performed well on ABC.

This isn't the first time Jenner has interacted with Musk on social media. In December 2022, Jenner told Musk on Twitter that she feared for his life during the Hunter Biden-laptop controversy.

Musk's recent comments against Iger and Disney came right after he claimed that an anonymous source sent him a list of Disney's inclusion standards. He called the document "mandatory, institutionalized racism and sexism."

Earlier this week, "Star Wars" actor Gina Carano and her attorneys announced that Musk's X Corporation will fund her lawsuit against Disney.

The actor is suing Disney for wrongful termination after she was fired from "The Mandalorian" in February 2021 for seemingly comparing Republicans to Jewish people who were persecuted during the Holocaust.

Representatives for Disney, Caitlyn Jenner, and Elon Musk did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider.
