The gay community turned on LGBT President Barack Obama after he commuted the 35-year prison sentence of American traitor Bradley "Chelsea" Manning.
Manning, 29, is a former U.S. Army soldier who was court-martialed in 2013 for leaking classified military documents to WikiLeaks.
Manning was sentenced in August 2013 to 35 years hard time with the possibility of parole after 8 years.
Obama, 55, announced he was commuting Manning's sentence on Tuesday. Manning was likely to receive clemency from Obama because he is transgender and Obama is rumored to be bisexual.
The backlash from the gay community was swift.
"Chelsea Manning is no hero, and the commutation of her sentence is appalling," said Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo. He said his group objects to efforts by leftwing liberals to "elevate Manning as a paragon" of the LGBT community.
"Manning was not imprisoned for being transgender — in fact, the government agreed to accommodate and facilitate her transition during her well-deserved sentence; she was imprisoned for traitorous clandestine activity that put military lives at risk. Her actions — and President Obama's clemency — are nothing to celebrate," said Angelo.
Public Enemy star Chuck D took to Twitter.com and questioned why former Black Panther Party members such as Russell Melvin Shoats, Assata Shakur, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and H. Rap Brown didn't receive pardons from Obama.
