Man Returns Late Wife's 'Woman Of The Year Award' After Caitlyn Jenner Given Same Prize

The husband of an NYPD police officer who died during a rescue mission during 9/11 terrorist attack, has launched an attack on transgender icon Caitlyn Jenner. He returned his wife's posthumous "Woman of The Year Award" after the magazine gave the same honor to Caitlyn Jenner last week.

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 to rescue those inside, was honored by the magazine a month after her death.
But after Jenner, 66, was anointed last week, Smith told the magazine’s editor, Cindi Leive, to take the award and shove it. He described it as a "slap in the face". 
“I was shocked and saddened to learn that Glamour has just named Bruce Jenner ‘Woman of the Year,’ ” Smith wrote in his scathing missive of the former Olympic track star and Kardashian reality-show patriarch.
“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?”
Last year transgender actress Laverne Cox was honored with the same title.
