People on social media have erupted in fury at a float in a July 4 parade in rural Sheridan, Ind. that depicted President Barack Obama in a toilet with the words "Lying African."

The IndyStar reported
on the story after a local resident who saw the float was disgusted by it and posted it on Facebook to show the public how disrespectful it was.

Social media users were up in arms on Twitter:

One tweet summed up the general dismay at the float:
