Fox News star Tomi Lahren rushed to the defense of Caitlyn Jenner after the former Olympian and reality star was filmed being heckled at CPAC over the weekend.

As Newsweek reports:

Tomi Lahren has defended Caitlyn Jenner after the California gubernatorial hopeful was deadnamed and heckled with transphobic abuse at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Dallas at the weekend.

The conservative political commentator and Fox News contributor has labeled the attacks on the 71-year-old as “despicable” and said the incident left her “blood boiling.”

“Hearing how some ‘conservatives’ treated @Caitlyn_Jenner at CPAC makes my blood boil,” Lahren tweeted.

Was Lahren right to stand up for Jenner after the heckling in question, or are conservatives right to be skeptical of the transgender GOPer from California? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
