The Heterosexual Pride hashtag got hijacked and it was truly hilarious.
Last week #HeterosexualPride started trending after a small group of people attempted to mock and belittle the LGBT pride movement on social media.
But Twitter had different ideas. The #HeterosexualPrideDay hashtag ended up being hijacked with hundreds of people mocking the hashtag and exposing just how ridiculous the idea of "straight pride" truly is. Given that London Pride is kicking off this week, we thought we'd revisit some of the best tweets.
