June is Pride month, which celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and all its history and accomplishments. The monthlong celebration is in honor of the 1969 Stonewall uprisings, which was a response to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn — a welcome refuge for the LGBTQ+ community.
The month’s origins are an important part of LGBTQ+ history, propelling equal-rights efforts further and inspiring the first pride parade in 1970.
Many people used the holiday weekend to also celebrate the beginning of pride. Robbie was enjoying the day on a boat with his girlfriend, brother, and brother’s partner.
The boat had multiple pride flags flying, and a fellow boater took that as an invitation to flip the group off and harass them.
In the Twitter thread, Robbie posted a video of the ordeal. And it’s good.
Just look at these little weenies.
Seriously, though, this boat is toast.
Wonder if they’d have the same outcome if they’d cut out the bigotry? Too bad we will never find out.
The best part? It was Robbie’s boat that rescued the people who were harassing them.
“The driver, possibly embarrassed, then rushed to start the vehicle again… Another few moments pass and we hear an incredibly loud explosion come from the direction they were headed,” Robbie told BuzzFeed News. “Our driver shouted, ‘Holy crap! They blew up!'”
People on Twitter loved the delicious, delightful karma.
One person asked what we all wanted to know: what the harassers were like once they got on the boat. The answer did not disappoint.
So sad. Alexa, play “What Goes Around Comes Around.”
