Pennsylvania-born Rod Salka must have thought he was being very cute when he decided to wear border wall-themed, “America 1st” trunks during his match, which took place in Indio, California, with Francisco Vargas – who was born and lives in Mexico – on Thursday. Instead, he ended up getting knocked out in six rounds and becoming a joke in the sports world.

Salka chose to send a very clear message that he doesn’t welcome immigrants during the fight, as well as his support of President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall, which is aimed at keeping immigrants from Latin America out of the country.

Watch the moment above and then see how people on Twitter eviscerated Salka below.
