California Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner has hit back at Jimmy Kimmel for calling her "Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig," The Hill reported.

During a segment on his ABC late-night talk show, Kimmel mocked Jenner for her Thursday appearance on ABC's "The View."

"Are we sure that isn't Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?" Kimmel said, while photos of former president Donald Trump and Jenner appeared on the screen.

He also called the reality star, now a political hopeful, "Caitlyn Jenner Car-Crashian" - a reference to the fatal 2015 collision Jenner was involved in.

Jenner responded to the comments by sharing a screenshot on Twitter of an article that branded Kimmel as "transphobic."

"Last night @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig," Jenner wrote. "He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat."
