People slammed Caitlyn Jenner for her anti-Trump video defending transgender kids
On Thursday night, Caitlyn Jenner broke what some thought was a too long silence when she
released a video condemning Trump's Wednesday night move to lift Obama's historic Title IX guidance meant to protect transgender children from discrimination in public schools.
Despite being known for holding some
heavily anti-LGBTQ views, the Republican Party still counts Jenner as one of its supporters. In March 2016, Jenner declaring that she wanted to be Ted Cruz's " trans ambassador" during the Republican primaries. A month later, Jenner switched allegiances and took a shot at Cruz for supporting North Carolina's controversial HB2 law while using the women's restroom at Trump Tower in New York.
Given Jenner's support for Trump, people were not willing to stand with her when she called Trump out on Thursday night.

Caitlyn Jenner had the caudacity to sit & say an "inspiring" message to our trans youth like she didn't vote for Trump.
Caitlyn Jenner is literally the only person in the United States surprised Trump is bad on trans rights
General reminder that Caitlyn Jenner voted and campaigned for this to happen and though she is trans she is not your friend.
Honestly, fuck Caitlyn Jenner for pushing her conservative bullshit, "Trump will be good" nonsense and then trying to act surprised now.
One of the most vocal critics of Jenner was transgender media personality TS Madison, who went on a 15-minute rant that ended up going viral on Facebook and Twitter.
"Miss Cailtyn, Imma need you, for the love of God and for all things holy and unholy, all things natural and unnatural, to sit your motherf****** a** down," Madison said.
While Jenner was getting read online, trans actress Angelica Ross shared why telling Jenner she was wrong is so important.
