Kris Jenner Reacts to Caitlyn's ESPYs Speech

Kris Jenner was noticeably absent from the ESPY Awards on Wednesday night as the rest of Caitlyn Jenner's family came out to support her in full force as she received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

We don't know why Kris wasn't there, but it doesn't sound like it was because of any hard feelings for her former spouse. "I think it was amazing and very brave," Kris told Us Weekly during the Amazon Prime Endless Summer Screening party on Thursday. "I think she looked beautiful."

We agree with both of those sentiments! Wearing an elegant, cream-colored Versace gown, Caitlyn delivered an incredibly moving speech, where she discussed, among other things, the bullying that transgender people have to face.

"If someone wanted to bully me - you know what? I was the MVP of the football team, that just wasn't going to be a problem and the same thing goes tonight. If you want to call me names, make jokes, doubt my intentions - go ahead," she explained. "Because the reality is, I can take it. But for the thousands of kids out there, coming to terms with being true to who they are...they shouldn't have to take it."

"To take my struggle, throw it out in front of the world, maybe I can bring understanding on this subject. It's time that I do my best... This is not something that people have to die over," she explained in a video clip that played before her speech.

We love that all of Cait's children and stepchildren (minus Rob Kardashian) were there to support her and that while ex-wife Kris wasn't there in the audience, she was still supporting Cait from wherever she was.
