According to her, she didn’t understand their anger at her and feels they also misunderstood her. She further revealed that ]she recently found out that someone was almost killed because they were a member of the LGBT community. She understands discrimination being a woman and but didn’t understand theirs and is sorry she had to learn it at their expense.
