A wrestler had his college scholarship rescinded after yelling ‘Fuck you faggots’ at a Trump rally.

Protestors had voiced outrage over President Donald Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration enforcement policy. Holding a Trump sign from the 2016 election, Harmon flipped protestor Abdul Lasaing the middle finger.

This is when he said, ‘Fuck you, faggots!’

Cal Poly did not cite the specific reasion for stripping the 18-year-old of his athletic scholarship.

‘Harmon will not be a member of Cal Poly’s wrestling team but we cannot comment on any details regarding his status as a student because of federal and state privacy laws,’ Cal Poly said in a statement.

Wrestler plays the victim

Lasaing, in an interview with USA Today, posted the original video on Facebook.

”I never thought my video would get this far for him to lose his scholarship,’ Lasaing said.

Harmon has suggested he was the ‘victim’ in this situation.

He told The Tribune, a newspaper in San Luis Obispo, that he admits what he said to Lasaing was ‘definitely not the right thing’.

Bronson said he wanted to attend the college ‘to be there to help the community to be the person I can be’.

He said he was looking forward to ‘representing the college the best way I can’.

‘But I still feel like my freedom of speech was taken away, and I don’t think my scholarship should have been revoked over something like that.’
