Caitlyn Jenner is not keeping up with the LGBT community after comments she made about GOP candidate Ted Cruz.

Users on social media lambasted the former Olympic gold medalist, who announced she’d like to be Cruz’s “trans ambassador” in The Advocate.

CAITLYN JENNER WANTS TO BE TED CRUZ’S ‘TRANS AMBASSADOR’

“I’ve unfollowed @IAmCait and @Caitlyn_Jenner As a woman who loves and respects women, I feel duped and disrespected,” wrote one user on Twitter.

Added another commenter: “She isn’t doing anything to advance LGBT politically.”

“Wouldn’t it be great, let’s say he goes on to be President,” the reality star said of the crusading Texas Republican in the magazine. “And I have all my girls on a trans issues board to advise him on making decisions when it comes to trans issues. Isn’t that a good idea?”

It’s a rarity for LGBT Americans to support the Republican party.

During the 2012 presidential race, a Gallup poll revealed that a mere 13% of the LGBT community identified themselves as Republicans.

CAITLYN: MORE ‘FLAK’ FOR POLITICS THAN TRANSGENDER IDENTITY

However, Jenner’s support of Cruz shouldn’t come as a shocker.

In 2015, when she publically came out as transgender in an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, the “I Am Cait” star said she’s always supported the right-wing party.

“I have gotten more flak for being a conservative Republican than I have for being trans,” the “I Am Cait” star reportedly told University of Pennsylvania students last month.
