Caitlyn Jenner is horrified she was caught wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” cap while out driving in Malibu Thursday, according to TMZ.
That’s not just because she now detests President Donald Trump following his move to ban transgender personnel from the U.S. military but because her wearing the hat was a big, stupid mistake, she told TMZ late Friday.
The LGBTQ activist who nonetheless supported Trump’s candidacy claims she grabbed the hat without looking at it as she was racing out the door. She said she needed a hat to wear to protect her hair while driving in her convertible to play some golf.
Jenner told TMZ: “I apologize to all of the trans community. I made a mistake. I will never do it again and I’m getting rid of the hat.”
Jenner, who came out as transgender two years ago, came under fire on social media, and reportedly from members of the Kardashian family, when she was photographed Thursday driving her 1960 Austin-Healey convertible, donning the pro-Trump hat.
The photo was taken just a week after the longtime Republican publicly expressed her outrage over Trump’s sudden decision to ban transgender personnel from serving in the U.S. military.
The Kardashians reportedly saw the photo of Jenner in the MAGA hat, called her a traitor to the transgender community and said that Jenner was flaunting her pro-Trump views in a “heartless” way, TMZ reported. They also accused her of promoting transgender rights in a selective way — only when it is useful for her, according to TMZ. For these reasons, sources told TMZ, the Kardashians want nothing more to do with Jenner.
