Peter Berg Pissed Over Caitlyn Jenner She Doesn't Deserve the Praise

Peter Berg -- Pissed Over Caitlyn Jenner ... She Doesn't Deserve the Praise

Peter Berg ain't happy with all the praise being heaped on Caitlyn Jenner -- and is now mocking everyone from ESPN to President Obama for honoring her ... instead of military vets. 

The "Friday Night Lights" director -- who also produces and co-stars in "Ballers" -- reposted a crass meme to Instagram following the ESPYs which compares a double amputee military vet to Caitlyn. 

Berg co-signed on the meme with a simple comment -- "Yup."  

Berg wasn't the only star to express outrage over Jenner getting the award -- Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry tweeted, "What exactly is 'COURAGE' these days?" 

He was retweeted by NFL linebacker Sio Moore

So, how is ESPN handling the criticism? Michelle Beadle summed it up this way:  

"This rage over an arbitrary award is silly. Courage and bravery come in many forms and faces. I welcome progress for everyone. #BeYou."
