Organizers of a race called “Run ‘n Gun” are under fire for using the LGBT rainbow flag as a shooting target. The picture on the race Facebook page showed two men with rifles standing beside a rainbow flag with the caption, “New high visibility targets on the 500-yard-range.”

After backlash, the race organizer’s explained that the post wasn’t a threat, just a misunderstanding.

The post has since been removed.
