Donald Trump just lost another vote. After the businessman, who has managed to upset quite a few since kicking off his 2016 presidential campaign, made racist remarks about Mexico during a kickoff event in New York City on June 17, Ricky Martin took to Twitter to slam Trump.

“Mucho odio e ignorancia en tu corazón @realDonaldTrump. #LatinosUnidos,” Martin tweeted on Thursday, June 25, which translated into English reads: “There’s much hatred and ignorance in your heart @realDonaldTrump.”

Martin’s tweet comes after Univision announced it would no longer be televising Trump’s Miss USA pageant on July 12 and following Colombian singer J Balvin’s decision to opt out of performing during the pageant.

In a statement released to the Associated Press, Univision representatives explained they based their decision on Trump’s “insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants.”

In case you missed it, Trump said that Mexico is sending the U.S. “people that have lots of problems…They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”

Trump, for his part, is defending himself. On Thursday the mogul tweeted: “Mexican gov doesn’t want me talking about terrible border situation & horrible trade deals. Forcing Univision to get me to stop – no way!…Univision wants to back out of signed @MissUniverse contract because I exposed the terrible trade deals that the U.S. makes with Mexico… I love Mexico but not the unfair trade deals that the US so stupidly makes with them. Really bad for US jobs, only good for Mexico.”
