Caitlyn Jenner ambushed at event for supporting Trump


Cape Town - Caitlyn Jenner was ambushed and confronted about her support for Donald Trump at the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Ashlee Marie Preston, an LGBTQI activist and journalist approached Caitlyn, telling her that she found it ridiculous that the reality TV star has continued to support the President of the US after banning trans people from serving in the military on Friday.

In video footage shared on her Facebook account, Preston can be heard calling Jenner a “fucking fraud and a fake.”

She continues: “What makes me mad is I supported you... so many of us supported you.”

Turning to a friend Preston added: “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 gave a brief response as she walked away, saying: “You don’t know me.”

Jenner is an avid republican and a Trump supporter since before he became president.

In her second interview with Diane Sawyer, Jenner admitted to voting for Trump because she believed he would surprise the world and be inclusive of the LGBTQI citizens.

Following Trump’s reversal of a directive on transgender access to public school bathrooms, Caitlyn addressed POTUS in a video on social media calling it a “disaster”.

The 67-year-old has not yet responded to request from comment about the confrontation.
