A news reporter told a Trump supporter to 'buzz off' on live TV.
Alex Zdan, who works at News12 in the US, was on screen reporting the reaction following the news that Joe Biden was to become the 46th President of the United States.
As he starts to speak to the camera, a man wearing a Trump mask and t-shirt appears behind him.
Zdan asks: "How you doing, pal?" in a cheery manner, but it seems as though the Trump backer is not a big fan of the free press asking: "Is this real news or fake news?"
Prompting Zdan to shoot back: "Buzz off!" before turning back to the camera, smiling and carrying on with his job.
The clip originally went viral when it was shared on TikTok, with social media users mishearing Zdan's clap back and thinking he had told the fella to 'f*** off'.
However, the man himself took to Twitter to clear things up posting that he was enjoying his new-found viral fame but that he definitely said 'buzz'.
So THAT'S what it's like to go viral...
Look I appreciate the social media love, but I told the guy behind me to BUZZ off when he interrupted me live on @news12.
But please respect members of the press who are doing their jobs, and telling your stories. @RexChapman @News12NJ

Either way, viewers absolutely loved his response.
One Twitter user wrote: "Alex Zdan from News 12, who just told a Trump supporter that interrupted his report and asked if they were real or fake news to "Buzz off," and then had him escorted by your security, you have my heart."
Another wrote: "My award for Awesome Journalist of the Year goes to: Alex Zdan for his spectacular troll management skills. Way to go."
While a third said: "I think Alex Zdan just became my personal hero. This is beautiful."
Earlier this week, a CNN news anchor also found himself going viral after someone made a fake clip, in which he appeared to deal with an unwanted pop-up from adult website Pornhub.
The viral clip showed CNN's marathon broadcaster and chief political correspondent John King talking about count in the state of Pennsylvania before the logo for Pornhub pops up in the corner of the screen.
King, ever the professional, appears to simply swat the sign away with his hand before continuing with the broadcast.
Even though the footage was clearly faked, it gave a lot of people a bit of a laugh at an otherwise tense time.
