While there, the Los Angeles resident felt the need to promote her cause and call for an end to the deportation of LGBT immigrants.
Unfortunately, she did it by shouting out DURING Obama's speech, resulting in major shade from both the President and the crowd.
"[Obama] came out, started speaking and started to get into his speech on how wonderful everything is. And I couldn't help but think about the conditions that my LGBTQ Latino/Latina, especially trans women of color, are facing in detention.
So, to me, that was the moment I had to speak up. I had to raise awareness to the President and to everyone else watching that I'm not just going to celebrate, when my trans sisters are facing a lot of violence in the detention centers. [Trans women are facing] sexual and physical abuse, and I just had to send a message."
Though we feel for the passionate activist — that moment was NOT the best time to speak up. Interrupting is always rude, but especially when it's your host speaking.
Nonetheless, the vocal guest was disappointed that her fellow attendees didn't support her. She explained:
"I'm just very disappointed with the way it was handled. I'm part of the LGBT community, and they didn't back me, instead they were booing, which to me was like a slap in the face to all these people in detention centers."
We're guessing ALL of the LGBT guests had strong causes they believed in. Not all of them shouted out rudely.
Plus to be fair, it was kind of hard to hear what she was saying clearly. Maybe next time schedule a meeting?
What do you think?! Was President Obama's response justified?
The brunette shared a sweet photo with her former flame and penned a heartbreaking caption in his memory.
The late sports star's longtime love reflected on their time together, writing:
"My deepest love goes out to those who saw jose as more than an athlete, but as a passionate, raw human being. The heart break is unbearable. There was so much more to him than anyone could even begin to understand. I'm fortunate enough to have loved and be loved by jose, and his family, for over 3 crazy beautiful years."
Miz Mendoza admitted she will always love the 24-year-old, and told her followers to never take moments with their loved ones for granted, adding:
