Monday’s news that Caitlyn Jenner will appear in the third season of Amazon’s “Transparent” show triggered some derision.

Comments on the People magazine report included:

“Caitlyn will play a delusional, narcissistic right wing character from a family of grifting gypsies with the morals of con artists and the common sense of rabid raccoons.”

And: “Good grief! Just like the Kartrashians, Jenner is just showing up everywhere, despite the fact that the show I Am Cait is tanking in the ratings. This is a family of cockroaches, no matter how hard you stomp on them, they just won’t die.”

On Twitter came this tweak:

People quoted show creator Jill Soloway as saying: “We are all part of the same community. A lot of the transwomen who work on our show are also in her show, ‘I am Cait.’ Lots of crossover. Lots of friends.”

The tabloid site also noted that Jenner, previously the Olympic decathlon champ as Bruce, “has displayed her acting chops before, having guest stints in ‘CHiPs,’ ‘Murder She Wrote’ and ‘The Love Boat.'”
