After Bruce Jenner's '20/20' interview, Australian radio station KIIS started a nail-painting campaign to support him.

Revealing that you're transgender and living as your true self can be difficult. Especially when you're in the public spotlight. And extra-especially when people accuse you of being a "fame whore" or too old to make the transition, stating "I mean, he's kind of, like past his prime, right?" (Those super classy statements are from Wendy Williams and Dr. Phil, respectively.)

But despite these challenges, Bruce Jenner proudly told Diane Sawyer "I am a woman" in his much-hyped, tearful 20/20 interview that aired on Friday. Jenner also told Diane Sawyer that "I wish to be able to have my nail polish for long enough that it can chip off." After hearing that, Australian radio station KIIS started a movement asking people to paint their nails in support of Bruce and post a picture using the hashtag #PaintYourNailsForBruce. Men and women alike have jumped aboard.

Here are just a few of Bruce's supporters:

KIIS even sent someone out to paint men's nails for them:

While the response has been largely awesome, not everybody's been in the completely supportive spirit, like this company that used the hash tag as an opportunity to sell a polish-remover product. Haven't companies figured out by now that they just shouldn't comment on current events?
