Homophobia reared its ugly head in response to the supposedly cheerful Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, as some Americans took to social media to criticize the performance of "Kinky Boots," an award-winning Broadway musical about a shoe factory owner and a drag queen who work together to turn the family business around. The way the performers responded to the controversy, however, was priceless.
