'I want everybody to go home,' Maxine Waters yelled at the crowd of homeless people

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) has caused outrage after visiting an event near an encampment in Los Angeles and angrily telling a large crowd of homeless people to "go home."

Waters attended an event in her LA district near a homeless encampment over the weekend.

Due to inaccurate posts on social media, the event drew large numbers of homeless people.

The large crowds caused Waters' temper to boil over amid confusion over Section 8 housing vouchers.

According to a report from the New York Post, Waters became angered when it was clear that staff at the event were being overwhelmed by the large turnout of homeless people.

At one point, Waters reportedly addressed the crowd of homeless people and yelled: "I want everybody to go home."

That comment reportedly triggered an angry response from the crowd, many of whom were homeless.

"We don’t got no home, that’s why we’re here!" one member of the crowd reportedly said back.

"What home we gonna go to?"

Watters then grew frustrated and said, "Excuse me, there’s nobody in Washington who works for their people any f— harder than I do.

"I don’t want to hear this. No, no, no." 

When a Los Angeles Times reporter contacted Waters about the event, the congresswoman reportedly tried to dissuade the paper from reporting the story.

"You’ll hurt yourself and the community trying to put this together without background," she told reporter Connor Sheets, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"I don’t want you to start trying to write it, you won’t understand it."

Video from the scene posted on Twitter by ABC 7 Los Angeles reporter Ashley Mackey shows Waters speaking to concerned citizens at the event saying that Waters was there to "help out."

One homeless disabled woman, Joyce Burnett, told the Los Angeles Times that she was having difficulty getting the answers she needed.

"Maxine Waters was here, and she said to come back Tuesday with our paperwork filled out," Burnett said.

"I have it, everything they asked for.

"But every time we get near the front of the line, they shut the door.

"They opened the door about 20 minutes ago and said they’re not servicing anyone else today."
