At the end of his event Sunday afternoon at a coffee house in Ames, Iowa, Texas Governor Rick Perry did not receive a warm endorsement from a few audience members.

Upset over his now infamous ad questioning gays in the military, one audience member decided to offer Perry his true feelings on him, according to the Des Moines Register.

“Why do you hate gay people?” he shouted.

Another member of the audience told the GOP presidential candidate to “Go back to Texas.”

Perry did not take questions at the event and hurriedly exited out the back door.
