The man is seen running up to a semi in slow-moving traffic and ripping off the flag.

The Grio, a black news website, grabbed the video from Twitter and posted it, adding James Brown’s “The Payback.”

The video shows the unidentified man trotting behind the truck, struggling to remove the flag. After several moments, he rips it off and gets out of the road.

The site reports the truck “appears to be a part of ‘TRIBE Transportation, Inc.,’ a company ironically owned by a Native American woman.”

For whatever reason, Grio called the company to tell on the driver and get reaction.

“Any issue like that we’d handle internally,” TRIBE Executive Vice-Preisdent Matt Handte said. “Regardless of what happened, that’s something we’d handle internally.”
