Story when Draupadi in her Svayamvara insulted Karna for his caste

Drupada arranged a svayamvara (public self-choice of husband) for his daughter Draupadi. To win Draupadi’s hand, the princes invited had to bend an enormous bow and shoot five arrows simultaneously through a revolving ring onto a target far away. After Jyarasandha and many failed in attempts to even tie string of the bow, Karna stepped forward to accomplish this near impossible task but he was stopped and insulted by Draupadi because of his caste.
