Caitlyn, who faced huge backlash in 2015 over her comments about marriage equality, went on to accuse Ellen of “alienating” her from the LGBTQ+ community.

As you might be aware, the discord between the two began after Caitlyn appeared on The Ellen Show in 2015, a few months after she came out as transgender.

During the interview, Ellen asked Caitlyn — who is an open Republican — about her thoughts on marriage for same sex couples.

At the time, though Caitlyn said she was “on board” with marriage equality, she maintained that she’d always been a “traditionalist.”

“I’m older than most people in the audience,” Caitlyn said. “I kind of like tradition, and it’s always been a man and a woman, and I’m thinking ‘I don’t quite get it,’” she said, before noting that her stance had changed over the years.

“I don’t ever want to stand in front of anybody’s happiness. … If that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, then I can go with it,” she said.

Caitlyn’s non-committal answer sparked huge controversy, with many people accusing her of being “hypocritical,” in light of her being part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Others noted that the comments were especially confusing coming from a transgender woman, given her presumed understanding of the importance of acceptance, and the ongoing struggle to combat anti-gay and anti-trans sentiment.
