WASHINGTON, July 7 (UPI) -- A video going viral on social media features a man running on a busy stretch of highway to grab a Confederate flag decoration from the back of a semi truck.
The video, originally posted by Twitter user @Aftashock, shows the man run up to the back of the slow-moving Tribe Transportation truck and pull a Confederate flag decoration from the back of the vehicle.
The video is set to the James Brown hit, "The Payback."
Commenters on Twitter and YouTube were divided, with some praising the man's actions as a blow against racism and others criticizing him for what appears to be an act of theft.
Matt Handte, executive vice president of Tribe, declined to specifically comment on the video, saying such matters are handled in private.
"Any issue like that we'd handle internally," he told The Grio. "Regardless of what happened, that's something we'd handle internally."
