Likud ministers Miri Regev and Ofir Akunis were on the receiving end of an angry backlash from right-wing social media users who objected to their presence at Tel Aviv’s Gay Pride Parade on Friday.

Regev, the culture and sport minister, and Akunis, who holds a position akin to that of a minister in the Communications Ministry, posted photographs on Facebook of themselves reveling in the parade alongside gay Likud members.

While their posts did garner likes and shares, there were also a number of angry messages from people who expressed disgust with their participation.
