Official US Navy Special Forces page draws backlash for ringing in Pride month

FOX NEWS reports

The official Facebook page for the U.S. Navy SEALs and Naval Special Warfare Command was mocked this weekend for marking the start of "pride month."

Backlash to the post surged when it was highlighted on the popular "Libs of TikTok" page on X, formerly known as Twitter. The post had no caption and included a photo with rainbow designs that read, "NSW. Dignity. Service. Respect. Equality. Pride."

Libs of TikTok shared the post to X on Saturday, writing, "The Navy SEALs have gone woke. Our elite special forces. This is terrifying."

The special warfare account took steps to limit the accounts that can comment on their post, suggesting administrators knew it would be controversial.

The comment section was nevertheless full of criticism.

"This is a slap in the face of every special warfare operator that has put their lives on the line for our nation," one person wrote.
