An extremely patient President Obama put a heckler in their place after he was interrupted during a speech at The White House on Wednesday.

“Listen, you’re in my house,” the president said during the Pride Month reception. “You’re not gonna get a good response from interrupting me like this … shame on you,” Barry added. The protestor continued interrupting the event for over a minute until #44 lost his patience and had them removed.

The heckler has since been identified LGBT advocacy organizations Jennicet Gutiérrez, who according to the folks over at Gawker, “seeks the immediate release of transgender immigration detainees.”

“The White House gets to make the decision whether it keeps us safe,” Gutiérrez said in a statement following his son-ning. “There is no pride in how LGBTQ and transgender immigrants are treated in this country. If the President wants to celebrate with us, he should release the LGBTQ immigrants locked up in detention centers immediately.”
