Some Americans are using a web service by Rightwingnews.com to add an American flag filter to their Facebook profile photos as part of the backlash against the legalization of gay marriage in the U.S.

The move is a direct response to Facebook’s “Celebrate Pride” rainbow filter, which allows users to show their support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to legalize gay marriage on June 26. Over 26 million people implemented Facebook’s filter in the days after the ruling.

However, one Twitter user, featured in the Independent, pointed out that the Rainbow flag and the American flag are not mutually exclusive symbols.
