WOW ! Husband of 9/11 victim returns Glamour Woman of the Year award after Caitlyn Jenner wins this year's accolade - Says it's an Insult to his Late Wife's Legacy !

The widower of a police officer who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks has returned her posthumous ‘Woman Of The Year’ award after Caitlyn Jenner was the recipient of this year’s accolade.

James Smith wrote an open letter on Facebook to Glamour US’s Editor-In-Chief Cindi Leive where he told of his decision to return the award which his wife, Moira, won in 2001. In the letter, Mr Smith refers to Jenner by her previous name Bruce and says the decision to present the award to Jenner, who publicly came out as transgender this year, was an “insult” to his wife’s legacy.

“I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year’… Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?” 

“I can only guess that this was a publicity stunt meant to resuscitate a dying medium.”

He concludes:
 “After discussing this slap in the face to the memory of our Hero with my family, I have decided to return Moira’s award to Glamour magazine.”
