A gay couple in Chicago went viral with their cheeky video clap back aimed at a thief who stole a Pride flag from their front porch.
Twitter user BowtieinChicago shared the video which mocks the banner bandit with sass galore.
“To the person who stole the Pride flag off our front porch, we’re so sorry a rainbow bruised your fragile ego,” begins the narration. “But, don’t worry – we have next-day Amazon Prime. You can keep taking our flag but you’ll never take our pride!”
During the clip, Pride flags literally run rampant as the boys show off a plethora of newly-acquired rainbows.
The duo warns the pennant pilferer to smile for the security cameras next time as they sign off with, “Love, the big ole homos who live here.”

The pride flag got stolen from my Uni’s pride center last year and they responded with a sign saying “To the person who stole our pride flag: we’re still gay. Now we’re just gay and angry.”
