Sergio Perez proved he is very much his own man when it comes to defending Mexico’s reputation and the honor of its citizens.
The Force India driver targeted a controversial message on Twitter by sunglasses brand Hawkers -a recently contracted personal sponsor of Perez – which mocked Mexicans in the wake of Donald Trump’s win in the US presidential election.
Hawkers suggested that Perez’ countrymen could now use a good pair of shades to hide their “crying eyes tomorrow when you are building the wall.”
Needless to say, the ill-fated tweet, which admittedly was a case of very poor humor and which the company has since deleted, did not go down well with Perez who immediately announced that he was severing all ties with the sunglasses maker.
Que mal comentario, Hoy mismo acabo mi relación con @HawkersMX .Nunca voy a dejar que nadie se burle de mi País! #MexicoUnido
