Caitlyn Jenner told an audience of students at the University of Pennsylvania that it is more difficult being Republican than transgender in Hollywood.
“I have gotten more flak for being a conservative Republican than I have for being trans,” Jenner said to a student who asked why the Olympian is not a Democrat.
Vanity Fair reporter Buzz Bissinger who penned the publication's interview with Jenner and was in attendance interjected, "Just because you change gender doesn’t mean you change your core beliefs."
This isn't the first time Jenner's political views have been questioned.
When the 66-year-old appeared on the "Ellen Degeneres Show," Degeneres brought up the issue of same-sex marriage.
"Gay marriage. … I’m a traditionalist. I'm older than most people in the audience. I kind of like tradition, and it's always been a man and a woman. I'm thinking, 'I don’t quite get it,'" Jenner told Degeneres.
