Caitlyn Jenner faced an angry group of protesters last week in Chicago.

Jenner encountered the demonstrators as she was leaving the Hilton hotel, where she had participated in a fundraising event for Chicago House, a nonprofit that offers social services to transgender people.

Protester Monica James told the Chicago Tribune that Jenner, who is white and wealthy, was not an appropriate representative for transgender people.

“Make the services and make this movement and this plea for trans tolerance intentional and direct for the people who are facing the violence every day on the streets, the people who are being discriminated against on the basis of their gender and their race at the same time,” James said. “She can't speak to those struggles.”

James, who held a sign that read, “Liberation not miss-representation,” spoke briefly with Jenner about her financial struggles. “I would love to see you have a job. I love you,” Jenner reportedly replied.

On its Facebook page, the group quotes Jenner, a Republican, making disparaging comments about people who receive public assistance. “You don't want people to get totally dependent on it. That's when they get into trouble. 'Why should I work? You know, I've got a few bucks. I've got my room paid for,'” Jenner said on her Bravo reality series I Am Cait.

Entertainment Tonight posted video from the protest, dubbed I Ain't Cait, in which a protester at the event is heard calling Jenner “an insult to trans people” and “an insult to women.”

B96 Chicago radio personality Showbiz Shelly told Entertainment Tonight that Jenner's appearance was a success.

“The chaos outside was a great contrast to the uplifting atmosphere inside where Caitlyn had just given her speech,” Shelly said.

Also attending the event were actress Candis Cayne, author-activist Jenny Boylan, author-playwright Kate Bornstein and MMA fighter Fallon Fox.
