A woman is being called a hero after storming through a crowd of far-right anti-LGBTQ+ protesters to rip down a sign they'd put up at the entrance to Disney World which read "Pedo World."
Conservative protesters have been picketing outside Disney World for weeks in response to the company's statement against Florida's so-called "Don't Say Gay" legislation, which went into effect last month.
Video of the incident, which has gone viral, showed the woman tearing down the sign as the protesters have a meltdown and begin yelling homophobic and transphobic insults at the woman. Undeterred, the woman had some choice replies.

The video showed the woman marching up to the "Pedo World" sign, which the protesters had affixed to the sign at the entrance to the Disney World resort in Orlando.
The protesters immediately lost their minds. "It's one of those triggered losers," one yelled without an ounce of irony or self-awareness.
Another yelled, "You support pedophilia!" at the woman, a common accusation among devotees of the QAnon conspiracy theory movement which proponents of the "Don't Say Gay" bill, including DeSantis and his spokeswoman, have latched onto.
Supporters of the bill claim it is an "anti-grooming" bill meant to protect students from pedophiles lurking on school staff.
But the text of the bill says nothing of the sort.
Rather, it bans "discussion" and "instruction" of sexual orientation or gender in kindergarten through third grade "or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate."
But the bill does not define any of those terms, leaving it open to essentially any interpretation any parent likes. It also allows parents to sue for any perceived violation of the law without any burden of proof of their accusations, and requires faculty members to notify parents if a student comes out as LGBTQ+ to them.
Even the most generous reading of the bill makes it seem like it is aimed at stoking fear among LGBTQ+ faculty, parents and students, which DeSantis and his fellow Republicans have cravenly chosen to obfuscate by calling opponents of the bill pedophiles and "groomers."
Which probably explains the clapback the woman at the protest shouted at the right-wing protestegrs that has seemed to stick with people the most.
As one of the protesters attempted to insult her by accusing her of being transgender—yelling "Do you got a d*ck?"—the woman yelled back:
"It's bigger than yours, bitch! Bigger than yours."
On Twitter, the woman's actions left many people cheering.
Others were in disbelief at the absurdity of the protest.
Other footage from the event showed police also ripping down and confiscating the same or a similar sign.
