In a major faux pas Tuesday, Kanye West accidentally called Caitlyn Jenner by her former name of Bruce.

"Kanye just called #CaitlynJenner 'Bruce,'" Reporter Aaron L. Morrison of the International Business Times tweeted. "Then said: 'Oops, I'm sorry. It's disrespectful to use that name.'"

West admitted he "still getting used" to calling Caitlyn by her post-transition name, Morrison added, noting that the "Through The Wire" rapper had a powerful compliment for Caitlyn earlier in the interview.

"I feel proud to be in a family that is breaking ground for generations to come," West said.

Despite Tuesday's error, West has been one of the Olympian's biggest supporters in her transition, as Caitlyn explained to Diane Swayer in her blockbuster ABC interview earlier this year how West helped wife Kim Kardashian understand what Caitlyn was going through, prior to her transition.

The Arthur Ashe Courage Award winner said: "They were talking about it and Kanye says to Kim, 'I can have the most beautiful wife in the world, and I do.

"And I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I do. But I'm nothing if I can't be me.'"
