These gay parents got shouted at, and people’s reactions will surprise you

A woman lays into a pregnant mother for giving her baby to two men – and people reacted in a surprising way.

Hidden camera show ‘What Would You Do?’ opted to explore people’s reactions to homophobia by rigging a fake confrontation in a cafe.

The stunt featured a number of actors, as pregnant woman Micheala meets two prospective adopters in a diner in New Jersey.

When the couple, David and Dan, arrived, the three are heckled by fake obnoxious onlooker Traci – in a bid to get responses from the real diners.

When the actors staged their confrontation, one diner grew visibly upset by comments from Traci, after she claimed that all children should have a mum and a dad.

He said: “Excuse me! That’s not your place. What’s wrong with these two men having a baby?

“If they’re in love, who cares? If someone came up to my gay brother and said that… I don’t know what I would do, honestly.”

Another man interjects: “That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen. She forgot it’s 2015.

“Enjoy your meal and let that go. I think you guys will do fine.”
