A black protester who tried to interrupt a speech by Donald Trump at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama was set upon by the candidate’s supporters.

The protester appeared to be shouting “black lives matter,” and wearing a shirt that read the same, according to CNN. Some six Trump supporters attacked him, with at least one man punching him, and a woman kicking him while he was lying on the ground.

Trump reportedly told security to “get him the hell out of here.”

Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNN “the campaign does not condone this behavior.”
