Caitlyn Jenner was confronted by angry protesters outside an LGBT charity event yesterday, who said that the reality star did not represent them.
The protesters lined up outside the Hilton Chicago with placards saying “I ain’t Cait” as the former Olympian left a luncheon for the charity Chicago House.
Jenner stopped to speak with the activists, who told her that she was an “insult to trans people” and an “insult to women”.
In the official Facebook page for the protest, organisers described the 66 year-old as “a clueless rich white woman who thinks disenfranchised trans women of colour should just pluck themselves up off the street and stop being so lazy.”
The claims are in reference to a comment made by Caitlyn Jenner on her E! docu-series I Am Cait, in which she implied that trans women are too dependent on social security – seemingly oblivious to the discrimination that trans women face when seeking employment.
