Many people were moved by Caitlyn Jenner's emotional speech when she received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs last night, but one person in attendance doesn't think she deserves the honor and all the fanfare.

Jessica Steindorff, a talent manager who was driving the Prius in the fatal crash the former Olympian was in last February, was at the ESPYs last night and gave a statement criticizing the accolades and praise Cait's been getting. Jessica is suing Caitlyn for negligent and reckless driving.

"I find it difficult to understand how the culture we live in can honor a person who is responsible for taking a life and injuring several others with both an award and a reality show," she said to ET. "For an individual who is such a positive role model in many aspects of her life, Caitlyn has failed to do the right thing and take responsibility for her actions."

"I would hope that someone who seems to greatly value the importance of human existence would be more sensitive to the fact that she ended another person's life. Sadly we are living in a tabloid society," she concludes.

Jenner hasn't been charged with any crimes stemming from the car accident so far and has expressed condolences.
