Jerry Springer Says He'll Stop Using 'Tranny' Slur On His Show

Controversial talk show host Jerry Springer is officially renouncing the word "tranny" and will refrain from using the term in reference to transgender individuals on The Jerry Springer Show now that he's been "educated."

Springer tells TMZ:

"I've just been educated," Springer said on TMZ Live. "I won't use that term. I honestly had no idea that you're not supposed to use that term, so now we'll find another term to use."

Watch!

Springer was on the receiving end of backlash following a recent broadcast titled, "Trannies Twerk It Out."

But seriously.
