U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who was out enjoying lunch with her teenage son and her friends as they attended a gay Pride Parade in New York City on Sunday, said she was booed by patrons and was the victim verbal abuse.

Haley posted this photo on Instagram showing the eleven people she was with, including her teenage son, Nalin. It was captioned, “Fun hanging out with this group today as we took on the Pride Parade in NYC. #SCTakesOnNYC #TeamHaleyUN #BooedButSmiling.”

In November 2013, as governor of South Carolina, Haley opposed a federal lawsuit challenging an amendment in South Carolina’s constitution that banned same-sex marriage, asserting, “The citizens of South Carolina spoke … spoke something that I, too, believe, which is marriage should between a man and a woman. I’m going to stand by the people of this state, stand by the constitution, I’m going to support it and fight for it every step of the way.”

But in 2016, responding to former president Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address, she said the GOP would “respect differences in modern families, but we would also insist on respect for religious liberty as a cornerstone of our democracy.”

Still, Twitter users took the liberty of ranting against Haley after she noted she had been abused:

What tolerance by the left.
