Like many others around the world, Toronto FC star Jozy Altidore took to social media to contest Donald Trump’s most recent egregious remarks.

Altidore posted a photo of himself with fellow black, superstar athletes P.K. Subban and Usain Bolt to Twitter on Saturday, with the caption reading “Three #shithole dudes just living the dream.”

President Trump himself was tagged in the tweet:

In the latest disparaging comments from Trump, the president reportedly lamented the idea of more immigrants entering the United States from “shithole countries” such as Haiti and several African nations in a closed-door meeting, while adding that the U.S. should accept more people from places like Norway.

The remarks have sparked outrage across the world, and many people took to social media to decry the seemingly racist words of the president.

Altidore was born in Livingston, N.J., but his parents were Haitian immigrants. A Toronto native, Subban’s parents immigrated to Canada from the Caribbean, while Bolt was born and raised in Jamaica.
