Washington:  US President Barack Obama was heckled during a White House event honouring LGBT Pride Month by an activist protesting his administration's policies on deportation of LGBT immigrants.

On being repeatedly interrupted, an angry Mr. Obama addressed the protesting LGBT activist directly, saying "no, no, no. Shame on you. You shouldn't be doing this."

"Listen, you are in my house. It's not respectful... ," Obama told the heckler, giving him another chance.

On being interrupted again, a visibly displeased Mr. Obama asked his security official "can we escort this person out?"

"You can either stay and be quiet or we'll have to take you out. All right, can we have this person removed, please?" Mr. Obama said as the activists persisted heckling the President.
