Former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum was greeting supporters after his loss in the South Carolina primary when an activist greeted him with a burst of glitter.

As Santorum closed his speech focusing on building strong family values, a gay rights activist said: "Except when you're gay" and threw a handful of glitter in the air.

Members of the Occupy Charleston group joined in with chants of "Rick, Rick, Rick, bigot, bigot, bigot" and singing "Santorum, Santorum, you're a bigot." As police escorted the group out, they shouted about Jesus preaching love.

The police escorted many members of the movement off-campus and would not allow them to retreive their vehicles parked there. But there were no arrests or incidents.

This isn’t the first time Santorum was glitter-bombed, he was also targeted during his final campaign event in Iowa late in December.

Santorum is frequently targeted by gay activists because of his never-ending anti-gay rights rhetoric.
