Caitlyn Jenner Reignites Feud With Ellen Degeneres By Claiming Talk Show Host Alienated Her From LGBTQ Community

She's certainly not making any friends these days!
Caitlyn Jenner stepped out to grab her daily caffeine fix this morning in Malibu, and she didn't seem too concerned about the fact that she's starting feuds with everyone under the sun!
First, she accused Kris Jenner of forcing her to live a lie as a man, then she accused Robert Kardashian Sr. of knowingly defending OJ Simpson even though he knew he was a murderer, and now she's accusing Ellen Degeneres of alienating her from the LGBTQ community.
The transgender reality star writes in her new memoir Stories of my Life that the talk show host baited her into discussing her controversial stance on gay marriage, then proceeded to twist her words in a radio interview.
"I believed, as anyone would, that that was exactly what she wanted to talk about my progression in terms of changing attitude over the years. I am for it. I did not initially understand why marriage was so important, influenced no doubt by my own personal experience. Now I do, and it's a wonderful thing to see. This discussion further alienated me from members of the LGBTQ community. Ellen's appearance on The Howard Stern Show, where in my mind she even more emphatically took what I said out of context, made it go viral," she recalled.
The I Am Cait star said she didn't believe in same sex marriage during an appearance on the TV show in September 2015, shortly after she transitioned into a woman.
"I have to admit that I remember 15 years ago, 20 years ago, whenever it was that the whole gay marriage issue came up, I was not for it. I am a traditionalist. I mean, I'm older than most people in the audience. I like tradition and it's always been between a man and a woman and I'm thinking I don't quite get it. But as time goes on, like a lot of people on this issue I've really changed thinking here, to I don't ever want to stand in front of anybody's happiness. That's not my job. OK. If that word marriage is really, really that important to you I can go with it," she confessed.
If she's trying to piss people off, it's working!
