ABC-What-Would-You-Do-Gay-Parents-Full-Disclosure

A same-sex couple walks into a Texas diner with their children. As they prepare to order, the waitress discovers that the parents are gay, and begins publicly questioning their lifestyle in front of their children and other patrons.

This clip is actually from a 2010 episode of ABC’s hidden-camera show¬†What Would You Do?¬†I remember seeing this on the internet at the time, but even re-watching it today it holds tremendous resonance.
