Mississippi Restaurant Patrons React To Gay Couple's Kiss, Other PDA On 'What Would You Do'

ABC's hidden camera show "What Would You Do?" took a look at how Mississippi locals would react to an act of blatant anti-gay discrimination at a restaurant in a recent installment.

Two actors portraying a gay couple visited a Mexican eatery, while third played a customer angered by the pair's public displays of affection. The reaction from the legitimate customers in the restaurant is both eye-opening and (at times) inspiring.

Over the past seven years, the ABC series has tackled other LGBT issues and scenarios. In a 2012 segment, "RuPaul's Drag Race" alum Carmen Carrera was cast in the role of a New Jersey diner waitress, while an actor portraying a longtime customer openly berated the employee he once knew and liked as "Christopher" after realizing she identified as transgender.

Another scenario, featured that same year, featured a young boy who tossed aside Hulk and Spiderman costumes in favor of Belle's dress from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" while shopping with his mother before Halloween.
