Caitlyn Jenner Left 'Shaken' After Being Attacked By Transgender Protestors

The latest episode of Caitlyn Jenner’s docu-series ‘I Am Cait’ saw the reality star and former Olympian left shaken after she came under fire from angry transgender protestors who accused Caitlyn of not being a true representation of the trans community.

The shocking scenes were filmed last November.

In the episode, Caitlyn was speaking at a charity launch when protesters, who have their faces covered, shouted: “Caitlyn Jenner you are an insult to all trans people, you don’t represent us. You’re a disgrace to our community.

"You have no right to speak for us. You get those awards and you dress up but you have no idea what it’s really like.”

The protesters became more and more agitated, ranting: “Caitlyn Jenner get away from us! We don’t get jobs, we don’t get any money. But you get all these awards - this isn’t all fun and games.

"You don’t care about the real transwomen of America - all you care about is what you look like on TV. We don’t need you, we don’t want you here. You don’t speak for us. We didn’t ask for your help!”

A concerned Caitlyn insists on talking to the protesters, pleading: “I’m not representing you. I’m representing myself. I would love for you to have a job and I’m trying to help people so they understand better.”

However, her words fall on deaf ears with the protesters continuing to shout at the star.

Jenny Boylan, a transgender friend of Caitlyn’s, later added in a confessional that she thought it was a good thing that the 66-year-old had been confronted by the angry crowds, sharing: “It was the first time for Caitlyn that she saw in the flesh people’s reservations about her, and I think that’s actually good for her.

"There are a lot of people with very reasonable objections to her privilege, maybe her sense of womanhood, her politics.

"Caitlyn is a public figure for transgender people but she’s a problematic figure and she needs to pay attention.”

The protesters have a Facebook group called 'I Ain’t Cait’ and previously explained their reasons for the verbal attack in a lengthy post, writing: “Caitlyn Jenner… lives in a mansion and has a net worth of millions of dollars, while the average trans person has a 41 percent chance of experiencing homelessness and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year.

”[She’s] a clueless rich white woman who thinks disenfranchised trans women of color should just pluck themselves up off the street and stop being so lazy.“

Eek, we have a feeling that Cait still has a long way to go before she wins over everyone.
