Caitlyn Jenner ambushed by trans woman over her support for Donald Trump
Caitlyn Jenner landed herself in some hot water on Saturday night after she was confronted by a trans woman over her continued support of Donald Trump despite his seemingly "anti-trans" stance.
The reality star, 67, was attending the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles when she was confronted by an angry Ashlee Marie Preston, who didn't hold back on her opinions of the former olympian.
Ashlee, who is an trans activist and journalist, found it "ridiculous" that Caitlyn continues to support President Trump after he decided to ban trans people from serving in the American military. Confronting Caitlyn at the event, Preston says: "You're a f***ing fraud and a fake."
In the video, which Preston uploaded onto her Facebook page, Jenner can be seen stood in the audience when Preston approaches the celebrity, who was formerly known as Bruce Jenner. As Jenner goes into to hug Preston, she begins her tirade against the start for what she sees as a wrongdoing to the trans community that she claims to represent.
"You continue to support somebody that does everything with the military to erase our community," Preston says to Jenner.
"It's really f***ed up that you continue to support him," she added.
After remaining silent throughout the course of the confrontation, Caitlyn Jenner can then be heard asking: "Are you done?"
However, that seems to only trigger Preston's anger further, as she retorts: "No I'm not done. I'm not done. It's f***ing ridiculous. You're a f***ing fraud," said Preston, as bystanders try and defuse the situation.
"What makes me mad is I supported you, so many of us supported you" continues Preston.
"We are complicit. It goes against the mission. How are we gonna fight if she's giving money to the people who are destroying us."
Caitlyn has been an outspoken supporter for the controversial president, something which many people have found bizarre due to his stance on LGBTQ rights. In March last year, Jenner gave her thoughts on Trump on her show I Am Cait, saying that she thinks his leadership would be "very good for women's issues."
She also gave a speech at a party convention in Cleveland, OH in July 2016, where she said that she believes that the party will begin to make progress in LGBTQ policies under their new leader.
Despite Trump announcing on Twitter that he would be banning transgender people from serving in the military on July 26 2017, Caitlyn was seen the week after sporting the infamous "Make America Great Again" hat from Trump's presidential campaign.
Jenner's public backing of Trump is what triggered Preston into the confrontation, where she continued her tirade, saying: "As long as we continue to be the ones that are most impacted by the choices that you make... it's not okay."
However, Caitlyn finally responds, saying to Preston as she walks away: "You don't know me."
Not one to back down, Preston turn back and says "Oh my god. Yes we do. You're a f***ing fraud and a fake."
Preston uploaded the video on her page, with the caption "Caitlyn Jenner you're trash..." and plenty of people have been quick to praise the journalist in the comments section.
Caitlyn Jenner is yet to speak out about the incident, but it's fair to say that her continued support of Trump has not gone down well with the community that she claims to represent.
