Brad Pitt has set the record straight on his rumored involvement with Boston's "Straight Pride" parade by ordering the organizers to stop using him as their mascot.

A source close to the actor told TMZ that Pitt's "team has reached out to the Straight Pride Parade organizers, demanding they stop using his name and likeness for their event." If not, greater action could be taken. The outlet reports Pitt's image has since been scrubbed from the site.

The Guardian reports that prior to Pitt's team reaching out, The Super Happy Fun America website, the official site for the "Straight Pride" parade, featured two pictures of the actor and declared, “Congratulations to Mr. Pitt for being the face of this important civil rights movement.”

Organizers of the event plan to have it take place on Aug. 31. One of the organizers, Mark Sahady, posted on Facebook that the parade will be "allowed floats and vehicles" and will be requesting to take the same route as the official Boston Pride parade.

In a Facebook comment, Sahady also explained that the event aims to celebrate heterosexuality in one of the nation’s most gay-friendly cities and is meant to poke fun at the “identity politics” of the political left.

Boston native and "Captain America" actor Chris Evans, as well as New York congresswoman Alexandria Oscasio-Cortez, are just two big names that have taken to social media to share their thoughts on the matter.

While organizers of the "Straight Pride" parade have not yet been granted a permit for the event, it does not mean they will not get one. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh explained on Twitter that "permits to host a public event are granted based on operational feasibility, not based on values or endorsements of beliefs."

Walsh goes on to clarify, "The City of Boston cannot deny a permit based on an organization's values."
