One particular protester, who used a megaphone, can be heard yelling, "You are an insult to trans people...you are an insult to women." The 66-year-old felt compelled to address the group and can be seen calmly addressing one of them, but it's tough to hear their interaction over the megaphone.
According to an "I Ain't Cait" event on Facebook, they explained what they were protesting and it was the fact that they feel Cait doesn't represent the trans community because of her celebrity status and privilege.
In the event description, they lamented that someone "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 experiencing homelessness and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year," was chosen to speak on the issues facing trans women in their city.
The event's organizer tells Entertainment Tonight that, "The point was to get people to come and talk about trans issues. Because she's been the subject of media scrutiny for decades, she's in a unique position to take whatever criticism she gets for speaking out on behalf of trans people who need help. She owns the fact that she has a ton of privilege."
A production source told ET that I Am Cait cameras were with her at the event and it looks like they were rolling during the confrontation.
