A viral TikTok video shows supporters of President Donald Trump backing down after they threatened to beat a President-elect Joe Biden supporter who was ready to fight them.

In his hashtags, Martinez wrote his support for Biden and the Black Lives Matter movement. The video starts with Martinez laughing at two men—one young man next to an older man—who are peering into his car.

“You a little nervous?” the young man, who's wearing a Trump cap, says to Martinez. “[...] Gonna beat the fuck outta you?” 

Martinez laughs and says, “You’re gonna beat the fuck out of me?”

“Yeah, get out of the car!” the man says.

Martinez gets out and challenges the man: “What the fuck are you gonna do man? I’m out of my car. What are you gonna do?” 

But the man appears to get nervous. He does nothing. The camera pans away as Martinez is heard challenging them, to which the man again says nothing. “We didn't come over here,” someone says to Martinez. 

“You just came up to my fucking car dude, what the fuck!” Martinez yells. 

The camera reverts back to the young man, who looks around nervously and picks at his fingers. None of his companions come to his aide. The man says meekly, “Your [inaudible] just lost.” 

“No we didn't!” Martinez responds. “This guy didn't lose!”

The video ends there, but people are cracking up at the way the Trump supporter apparently shriveled into fear as soon as Martinez got out of the car. 

“Intimidation gone wrong,” wrote one user. “Trump lost already bro!” wrote another. “He’s looking around like ‘guys he got out what do I do?'”
