That didn't go over well.

Yesterday, Caitlyn Jenner gave the keynote address at the Speaker Series luncheon for Chicago House, which provides social services for those affected by HIV/AIDS and other LGBT issues

After speaking in front of more than 1,000 people, Jenner stepped outside the Chicago Hilton to find another crowd waiting for her, albeit one that was a little less enthused.

The group, calling itself "I Ain't Cait" (well played), told Jenner that she had "no right" representing the LGBT community.

"You are an insult to trans people, you are an insult to women," they yelled.

Jenner tried to reason with the protestors, but they weren't interested.

On their Facebook page, the group stated that "Caitlyn's wealth made her unrepresentative of the average member of the trans community.

"Caitlyn Jenner... lives in a mansion and has a net worth of millions of dollars, while the average trans person has a 41 percent chance of experiencing homelessness and a nearly 50 percent chance of living off less than $10k per year."

In season one of I Am Cait, the staunch Republican made a few stinging comments about the less fortunate members of her community. 

"‘You don’t want people to get totally dependent on it," Jenner said at the time.  On camera. 

"That’s when they get into trouble. ‘Why should I work? You know, I’ve got a few bucks, I’ve got my room paid for.'”

The group called Jenner "a clueless rich white woman who thinks disenfranchised trans women of color should just pluck themselves up off the street and stop being so lazy.

According to Gossip Cop, a film crew accompanied Jenner and her I Am Cait co-star, Candis Cayne for the show's second season.
