Trans activist confronts Caitlyn Jenner: ‘You’re a f***ing fraud’
Over the weekend, during a Trans Chorus of L.A. event, Caitlyn Jenner was confronted by a transgender activist.
Ashlee Marie Preston confronted the star because she said that Jenner had committed the “ultimate betrayal” of the LGBT community because of her support for Donald Trump. The editor-in-chief of Wear Your Voice magazine specifically pointed to the fact that Trump has recently called for a ban on transgender individuals serving in the military, and the fact that Jenner was seen out and about wearing one of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hats just days after the announcement.
“You’re a f***ing fraud,” Preston says in a now-viral video. “It’s really f***ed up that you continue to support somebody… that does everything with the military, that’s erasing our f***ing community. And you support it.”
Caitlyn Jenner you're trash…

Preston has since resigned from the Trans Chorus of L.A., and she took to Twitter on Sunday to defend her actions.
“Caitlyn Jenner is a text book case on cognitive dissonance and her vote against her own supposed interests made that evident,” Preston said. “She owes the community an apology; giving us the change from her bra is like putting a band-aid over a bullet wound. Her commentary and actions have carried real consequences for the transgender community; people who aren’t afforded the same protections and privilege as she has.”
