The head of the National Straight Pride Coalition accidentally called his organization a “totally peaceful racist group” to laughter from those gathered at a California city council meeting on Wednesday night.

The laughter was so loud that Don Grundmann couldn’t audibly correct himself, even though he was speaking into a microphone. 

Videos posted by outlets present for the meeting show Grundmann pleading his case to hold a “straight pride” event at an amphitheater in a residential park in Modesto. Thomas Reeves, a spokesperson for the city manager’s office, told USA TODAY the event application is still being considered. 

“We’re still working on a few items related to our normal due diligence relating to these types of applications,” he said.
