When Michelle Obama's speech at a private Democratic National Committee fundraiser was interrupted by a heckler, the First Lady took a stand.

Obama's remarks were disrupted by Ellen Sturtz, according to CNN. HuffPost's Amanda Terkel reports the heckler began yelling for an executive order on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

Obama responded to the heckler by moving away from her podium and into the crowd.

"I don't care what you believe, wait, wait, wait. One of the things, one of things I don't do well is this," Obama said. "Listen to me or you can take the mic. But I'm leaving. You all decide. You have one choice."
