Family of 9/11 Hero Returns Glamour Magazine's Award

Who is the hero?
Glamour magazine is feeling the backlash now after it gave the "Woman of the Year" award a few days ago to the cross-dresser Bruce Jenner aka Caitlyn. The first salvo came from the husband of a cop killed on 9/11 after he returned his wife’s award.

James Smith told The Post he yanked the award off the shelf in his Long Island home dedicated to his wife, Moira, and FedExed it back to the magazine.

Moira, who died at the age of 38 after rushing into the south tower, was honored by the magazine a month after her death.

But after Jenner, 66, was anointed, Smith told the magazine’s editor, Cindi Leive, to take the award and shove it.

"I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce 'Woman of the Year,'" Smith wrote in his scathing missive, calling "the former Olympic track star and Kardashian reality-show patriarch "Bruce Ball-less Jenner."

"Was there no woman in America, or the rest of the world, more deserving than this man?" Smith wrote. "At a time when we have women in the armed forces fighting and dying for our country, heroic doctors fighting deadly diseases, women police and firefighters putting their lives on the line for total strangers, brave women overcoming life threatening diseases . . . the list of possibilities goes on . . . is this the best you could do?"

Jenner was among several others feted at Carnegie Hall, including Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon, tennis star Billie Jean King and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham.

A spokesman for the magazine told The Post that it received Smith’s letter and that it stands by its honors.

Well, they better rethink about that because the previous awardees are also seriously considering their now devalued recognition.
