After the Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star’s Vanity Fair cover story was released, Jenner was congratulated by fans, his Keeping Up With the Kardashians family members, and even President Barack Obama.

Tim was then accused of being transphobic and insensitive toward Jenner. The creator of hit records such as “One In A Million,” “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Cry Me A River,” and “Holy Grail” jumped on Twitter to defend his use of the meme and to call out the media for focusing on his post.
