Caitlyn Jenner Has a Classy Response to Protesters

Caitlyn Jenner Has a Classy Response to Protesters

Caitlyn Jenner was confronted by a group of protesters while trying to enter an event on Wednesday night (November 11) in Chicago, Ill.

The 66-year-old former Olympian was the keynote speaker at the event and was met by a group of protesters, one who screamed, “You are an insult to trans people, you are an insult to women.”

Caitlyn was seen trying to calmly talk to the protesters, but they wouldn’t let her get a word in. After a few attempts, the reality star walked away with her security team.

“The chaos outside was a great contrast to the uplifting atmosphere inside where Caitlyn had just given her speech,” radio personality Showbiz Shelly told Entertainment Tonight. “I thought she handled the situation with poise. By confronting the protesters in the way she did, she emphasized the themes she talked about in her speech. To be respectful, be brave, and stand up for what you believe in.”

“Who, you may ask, did they select to speak on the issues facing trans people and especially trans women in our city? Caitlyn Jenner. Caitlyn Jenner, who lives in a mansion and has a net worth of millions of dollars, while the average trans person has a 41 percent chance of experienceing homelessness [sic] and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year.

Caitlyn Jenner, who said in a segment on her hit new reality TV series ‘I Am Cait,’ regarding people who rely on social services to get by: ‘You don’t want people to get totally dependent on it. That’s when they get into trouble. ‘Why should I work? You know, I’ve got a few bucks, I’ve got my room paid for.”

If you think Chicago House’s shameless pandering to the trans community for mediocre representation, embodied by 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, is an insult and a disgrace, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Meet us in the lobby Thursday to tell Chicago House, Caitlyn Jenner, and all her supporters that Caitlyn Jenner doesn’t represent trans people! Stand up and say: #IAintCait!”
