DALTON, Ga., June 29 (UPI) -- A parade of Confederate flags in Dalton, Ga., ended in a fender-bender and a viral video.

A YouTube video of the event, shot over the weekend, shows several trucks driving by waving Confederate flags. The bystander who shot the video was marveling over the sight and is overheard saying, "God don't like ugly."

After a few trucks pass, the man comments, "They about to wreck." Eventually, two trucks do. The parade was supposed to end in the local Walmart parking lot, according to The Grio.

The Confederate flag has come under increased criticism in the wake of the Charleston church shootings last month.

On Saturday, Brittany "Bree" Newsome climbed a flag pole at the South Carolina Capitol to remove the Confederate flag. Newsome and a fellow activist were arrested shortly after.

No one was hurt in the Georgia incident.
