Caitlyn Jenner is reportedly upset by the already-declining ratings of her reality show I Am Cait, not to mention the criticism she’s faced.

It’s not the Twitter trolls riling her up either – as she’s made it clear, she can take that. But the transgender community calling her out?

Despite enormous hype, only half the people who tuned in to watch I Am Cait online or on E! returned for the second week of the show.

Moreover, Jenner has been bombarded by harsh comments from outspoken members of the transgender community in recent weeks.

A source tells Radar that “She is devastated!”

“Caitlyn is extremely upset about the ratings and does not want to talk to anyone right now,” the insider says. “Not even her family.”

All the while, she’s been assailed by transgender activists who say she is out of touch with the community she is trying to represent.

Caitlyn’s solution? In true Jenner fashion, enlisting the help of the Human Rights Campaign and the power of her social media.

Two days ago she posted on her Instagram page a photo of her and her HRC transgender allies, along with a caption that read:

“Thank you so much for all of your questions! My friends at @humanrightscampaign helped me answer some of them.”

She also linked to the HRC website, which reads:

“On last night’s episode of I Am Cait, Caitlyn Jenner met with transgender activists and leaders, including HRC staff members."

She learned about the group’s struggles with "workplace discrimination, access to healthcare, anti-transgender violence and visibility.”

This positive PR collaboration is no accident.

The source tells Radar that in response to the backlash, “The Human Rights Campaign is helping Caitlyn to repair her image."

"They are making sure everything she says from now on in is congruent with the view of the transgender community as a whole.”

“She is definitely hurt by all of the criticism and asked her friends at the HRC to help her undo any of the damage that she’s done."

"Caitlyn really wants to help people."

"That is not just a storyline.”
