The man who posted a video on his Facebook page of a Missouri State Fair rodeo act that mocked President Barack Obama says he's been the target of hateful comments for the last two weeks.

Perry Beam, of Higginsville, told The Kansas City Star that if he had known that the video would attract national attention and criticism, he would have left it on his cell phone.
