A five-city speaking tour scheduled for Caitlyn Jenner has been cancelled and her publicist cited a conflicting “work commitment” as the reason why, according to USA Today. Ticket prices for the program, scheduled through Unique Lives & Experiences, had ranged from $50 to $500.

Jenner’s tour was expected to focus on her personal journey “with an inspiration-message of acceptance towards the transgender community and what it takes to lead an authentic life, followed by a short, moderated, question-and-answer period,” according to USA Today.

The recently-transitioned Olympic champion has come under criticism for comments about her experience as a trans woman, some of which have been perceived as transphobic. “There are some things that I have not gotten right. Sometimes this is because I’m still finding out about the issues,” Jenner wrote in a December blog post.  “Sometimes this is because something that is true for me isn’t true for other people in our community. And sometimes I’ve said things that just come out the wrong way,” she said.
