Of course, Lady Gaga has to join the hullabaloo and her tweet goes like this:

Family support is not wanting as Caitlyn’s daughter Kim Kardashian has this to say:

Kendal Jenner another daughter was even more direct in her statement as she stated:

Even Jessica Lange gave her reaction when comparisons were made on her and Caitlyn Jenner and she said, "That's so wonderful. Well now I'm going to have to look for that picture."

Of course, the story definitely received negative and disgusting remarks coming from Christian fundamentalists, Kardashian haters, right wing supporters, homophobics, and among others. The important thing in this story is the outpouring of support as this is a life changing decision and a very courageous one for Caitlyn Jenner.  You can just imagine for us ordinary mortals how stressful and mindboggling it could be facing the consequences of the transformation.  As of press time, Caitlyn Jenner has broken President Obama’s record by gaining more than 1 million followers in just four hours.  But the most important support that she got was from her mother and Esther Jenner gave one of the most emotionally moving response:

"She is...so much more at ease...It's going to be a struggle for me to get used to the change, but happily so...I'm very happy for him—or her!"

Browsing on Twitter, it is an emotional upheaval for some who were greatly affected with this story, probably because they knew of someone who wanted to do what Caitlyn Jenner did.
