The 66-year-old former Olympian was leaving a speaking event for Chicago House at the Chicago Hilton hotel when he was bombarded by a swarm of protesters.
“You are an insult to trans people,” one protester said. “And you are an insult to women.” (RELATED: Magazine Angers Readers When It Names Caitlyn Jenner ‘Woman Of The Year’)
