Yesterday, thousands of people around the U.S. took to the streets to protest a string of dangerously restrictive bans on abortion in states like Georgia, Ohio, and Alabama.

In Philadelphia, an unlikely voice joined the protests: A guy (or girl) dressed as the Rita’s Italian Ice mascot, which has been dubbed the “Ice Guy” by the Trevose, Pennsylvania–based dessert company. Local quizmaster Johnny Goodtimes spotted the “water ice” mascot in the streets and sent out a now-viral tweet about it.

In several tweets, Rita’s Italian Ice denied any involvement in the mascot’s participation in the protest or interest in participating in the abortion debate.
