The saying goes that not all heroes wear capes, and this man is the perfect example of this. Say hello to a man saying 'f*** you' to members of the Proud Boys - yep, an absolute legend!
In a video that promptly went viral following the protests in Portland on Saturday, a man can be seen walking directly into a group of right-wing demonstrators, and not holding back on dropping the f-bomb.
Pointing at a random selection of apparent Proud Boy members, the man can be heard saying:
He then points to another member of the group, and repeats the slur again:
Yep, he then repeats it again, and again, and again. However, he does then make an exception for the dog, which he kindly describes as:
After the clip was shared to social media, it quickly went viral, with many calling the man a 'hero'.

Saturday saw a group of 500 right-wingers travel to Portland from around the country, in order to march across the city's bridges and to briefly occupy a patch of its waterfront, reports the Guardian.
After the rally, the Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio took to the group's Telegram account, saying:
Sooner or later, [Portland mayor Ted Wheeler] will run out of money and his counterparts in government will no longer take him seriously.
The path forward for Mayor Wheeler is simple, free your city from the grip of Antifa, take direct and meaningful action.
President Donald Trump put pressure on the city's authorities early in the day, with a typically explosive tweet, saying:
Major consideration is being given to naming ANTIFA an ‘ORGANIZATION OF TERROR’,” the president wrote from his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Saturday morning. 'Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job!'
In response, Portland's mayor Ted Wheeler told CNN:
Frankly, it’s not helpful. This is a potentially dangerous and volatile situation, and adding to that noise doesn’t do anything to support or help the efforts that are going on here in Portland.
