The former Disney star didn't necessarily see Caitlyn in a very positive light after the premiere, though:
"I think it's wonderful, and yes, it needs a light being shined on it. When I came out, I didn't go and go hardcore and be like, ‘I'm going to save the world for LGBT…' You've got to learn it. You've got to learn it first, and she's not, really."
The 29-year-old former Disney star responded later to her (soon to be former) co-host Rosie Perez, when Rosie made the point that Caitlyn's presence can help shape the conversation around transgender issues:
"Well, I think you can be strategic before you come out as well. Before [I came out], I was definitely repping the community, even when I wasn't saying this is what I was. And I'm not faulting [Caitlyn], because yes, we need [her]. It's too fast, too soon."
Too fast too soon? You've got to learn it first?!
