A security guard in Delray Beach, who claims to be very very hetrosexual, has changed his name to Bruce Jenner in order to preserve the name's "heterosexual roots."
In light of Caitlyn Jenner's recent transition, Mark Behar, a celebrity bodyguard who seems to exclusively wear clothing displaying his own face, hired Boca Raton PR firm TransMedia Group to handle his press following the announcement of his name change on Monday. 

In a press release posted to Behar's Facebook page, the firm says their client is "110% All American Alpha Male" and changed his name in February to keep the integrity of the legendary name of gold medalist Bruce Jenner. 

“The famous Bruce Jenner name will return to its heterosexual roots where our client believes it belongs instead of hanging out with the likes of the Kardashians and getting into car accidents as Katlyn,” Thomas Madden, TransMedia's CEO said in the release, showing off the professionalism of his company and client by blatantly misspelling Caitlyn Jenner's name.

According to the Sun Sentinel, even though hanging out with "the likes of the Kardashians" is something Behar finds himself to be above, he once boxed with Caitlyn before her transition.

He also served as a bodyguard for the family, according to New York Daily News

Behar, a vocal Trump supporter, has posted multiple derogatory pictures about Caitlyn Jenner to his Facebook page in the past, as well as pictures objectifying women. 

Recently, he posted a fake birth announcement about his name change, where he called himself " quite handsome" and a "true alpha male."
