The owner of a Cincinnati restaurant is apologizing for what he now says was a crude joke about former olympic champion Bruce Jenner's transition to becoming a woman. 

The owner of "Senate" on Vine Street named a "hotdog of the day", with references to genitalia, after Jenner hours before his televised interview was aired last Friday.  Transgender activists blasted the restaurant online, which forced owner Daniel Wright to apologize and make a donation to the Heartland Trans Wellness Clinic, a 10-year-old Cincinnati advocacy group that assists transgender people in finding support, medical assistance and other help.
