Raven-Symoné thinks Caitlyn Jenner is moving 'too fast'

Raven-Symoné thinks Caitlyn Jenner needs to learn more about the transgender community.

The 'View' co-host says the 65-year-old reality TV star, who was previously known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing gender transition in May, has become an vocal activist "too fast, too soon."

Discussing the debut episode of the former Olympian's new E! reality series, 'I Am Cait,' in which Caitlyn met with a late teen's parents and friends to highlight the rates of suicide amongst transgender youth, the 29-year-old star said: "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.

"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."

The former Disney star, who first revealed she is in a same-sex relationship last year, says she doesn't even claim to be an activist herself yet either.

Speaking on the US chat show, she said: "I can't be. I learned from the real gay rights activists. I can only do what I can."
