Caitlyn Jenner was ambushed by another transgender woman—over her support of President Donald Trump.

Jenner, the Olympian-turned-reality star who was formerly known as Bruce Jenner, was attending a performance of the Trans Chorus of Los Angeles on Saturday night.

After the performance, she was approached by a transgender woman named Ashlee Marie Preston. As Jenner went to hug Preston, Preston launched into a tirade against Jenner about her political beliefs.

“You continue to support somebody that does everything with the military to erase our community,” said Preston.

She added: “It's really f**ked up that you continue to support him.”

Jenner remained silent for a moment, before asking Preston: “Are you done?”

Preston wasn’t done—continuing her tirade, as bystanders attempted to defuse the situation. “No, I'm not done,” she said. I'm not done. It's f**king ridiculous. You're a f**king fraud.”

“What makes me mad is I supported you,” she added. “So many of us supported you.”

Preston then turned to her friend, and continued: “We are complicit. It goes against the mission. How are we going to fight if she's giving money to the people who are destroying us.”

Jenner turned to leave, saying only, “You don’t know me.”

Jenner, a lifelong Republican, had famously supported President Trump during the 2016 presidential election--claiming that Trump would be good on both women’s issues and transgender issues. However, despite her support, Jenner hasn’t been afraid to publicly criticize Trump over transgender issues, like the trans military ban.

Preston later posted the video of her encounter with Jenner to Facebook, with the caption: “Caitlyn Jenner is trash.”
