A young girl became an Internet sensation after standing up to a preacher.
7-year-old Zea Bowling was sad when she saw a man preaching hate on the streets of Ohio.
Her father Ryan Bowling recorded the video of his young brave daughter standing in front of the preacher with a rainbow flag.
The incident took place on the weekend at ComFest, an annual music and arts festival in Columbus.
Ryan said that when Zea heard the preacher, she was shocked as to why he would bother to come to the community festival just to be so mean.
The first grader decided to take on the preacher. She took a rainbow flag and waved it in front of him. He continued his rant while people walked up the girl and encouraged her.
The video was uploaded to the Internet, where it quickly went viral.
