Late night talk show host Conan O’Brien was trolled by Twitter Sunday while filming a television special in Haiti.

O’Brien announced last week his intention to travel to the island nation following alleged remarks from President Donald Trump referring to Haiti as a “shithole.”

“I’m sure I’m going to love Haiti, mainly because Trump hates it so much,” Conan said in a video uploaded to YouTube Monday. “You see, what I’ve noticed is whenever that guy hates something, I end up loving it.”

In one tweet during his visit, Conan stated that Haiti was a “truly beautiful country” while showing a photograph of himself drinking from a coconut.

The tweet, which has currently been shared nearly seven thousand times, was quickly bombarded by criticism and trolling over the celebrity’s apparent refusal to show the country’s dilapidated state.

Twitter users then took their responses one step further by photoshopping O’Brien into poverty-stricken areas of the country.

Trump denied making the “shithole countries” comment earlier this month in a statement on Twitter.

“The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,” the president said. “What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made – a big setback for DACA!”
