June 25 (UPI) -- A fed-up gorilla finally stands up to bullies in a viral video posted to YouTube, which shows that even gorillas just can't take the shrieks of taunting children.

"You ugly," the group of kids repeatedly yells at a gorilla sitting calmly by an observation window at the Dallas Zoo. The heckling goes on for a few moments, until the gorilla suddenly presses his hands against the glass and stares menacingly through the window, prompting the rowdy bunch to scream and step back.

Watch the video above.
