Derek Brunson says he has “no problem with gay people,” but the UFC middleweight did have a problem with children attending a drag show at a gay nightclub over the weekend.

The event, held at Mr. Misster in Dallas, was promoted as “Drag The Kids To Pride” and was meant as a celebration of people being themselves to kick off Pride Month. The nightclub encouraged parents to bring their kids for a drag show Saturday morning.

Video online showed drag queens taking dollar bills from kids’ hands while dancing on a makeshift runway beneath a pink neon sign that read “IT’S NOT GONNA LICK ITSELF.” Kids also danced alongside drag queens while their parents looked on.

The event was met with outrage by protesters outside of the nightclub. Brunson, 38, voiced his disapproval for the event in a series of tweets pointing out the various aspects that bothered him. The 10-year UFC veteran called the event “(a) bit much” and “some BS.”

“There’s nothing against the LGBTQ community. It’s more about protecting kids,” Brunson tweeted. “Their minds aren’t mature enough for these types of behavior.”

Brunson’s negative sentiments over this Pride Month event came on the same day that UFC flyweight Jeff Molina spoke out about backlash he received for wearing the UFC’s rainbow-colored Venum kit in celebration of Pride Month after his win at UFC Fight Night 207 in Las Vegas.

You can read Brunson’s tweets below:

This is bit much . Children at a provocative drag show… Can we protect our children more in today’s society . Children don’t need to be at strip clubs , or any provocative show throwing money . SMFH 🤢 *read the message on the board in the background” …

“It’s not gonna lick itself” sign , throwing dollars , twerkin in splits right in front of kids . Search the event to see more. And there’s nothing against the LGBTQ community . It’s more about protecting kids, their minds aren’t mature enough for these types of behaviors 👌🏾

It’ll be the same response from me if pictures of children in a strip club was floating around the internet . FYI I’m not god , I don’t have no problem with gay people . They’re some of the coolest folks . But this is some BS
