Police in London have reportedly opened a hate crime investigation after a photographer shouted “Oi Bruce, get your d*** out” at Caitlyn Jenner as he/she was leaving the British LGBT Awards in London.
According to The Daily Mail, the incident took place on Friday night as Jenner was leaving the Grand Connaught Rooms in London where the awards ceremony was being held.
The Sun reports that “the former Olympian was left shaken” by the outburst.
“She’d had a wonderful time but as she went to leave the whole atmosphere changed,” a representative for Jenner reportedly told the outlet. “Someone shouted to her. Then someone else threw something at her. It was horrible.”
The Sun reports that “the vile abuse – most of which is too rude for publication – continued until Caitlyn was driven away.”
The outlet further states that one eyewitness described Jenner as looking “terrified” by the ordeal as security whisked her into her car.
Photos from the ordeal appear to confirm this.
According to Metro, London police confirmed the incident.
“Officers attended and spoke to one of the organizers who alleged that a photographer had verbally abused a woman and a man as they were leaving the event,” said a spokesperson according to the outlet.
“No arrests have been made. Enquiries are ongoing.”
