A guy walking around Seattle while wearing a Nazi armband on Sunday was spotted and punched out by a group of anti-fascists, according to Buzzfeed.

As Buzzfeed reported, several anti-fascist social media accounts on Twitter, Reddit and Facebook tracked the neo-Nazi as he meandered in downtown Seattle. Within an hour of a few people spotting him, the man was confronted by several people on the street.

Soon after, Facebook user Shaughn Patrick Ffud (real name Sean Patrick Duff) posted a photo captioned, “Just watched a Nazi get knocked the f**k out.”

  1. The video of the punch was reposted by @Baggenst0s on Twitter
  2. Photos of the man wearing the swastika armband were first published when he was spotted on a bus

    The photo of the man riding Seattle’s D line was first posted to Twitter by user @bigotbasher, who wrote:

    "#AntiFascistAlert

    Nazi shit head seen on D line headed to downtown #Seattle

    Submitter said they were harassing a black man on the bus"

  3. The picture was shared by several Twitter accounts that worked to keep tabs on the man

    Duff told BuzzFeed News that he happened to come across the man with the armband and actually watched the whole confrontation happen.

    "I literally just got off a bus and was walking to a movie and saw some guy being obnoxious up the way. Which I'm used to in downtown Seattle, but then I saw the Nazi armband and realize we are dealing with a guy a little more than just obnoxious," Duff told Buzzfeed. "I had eaten over 800mg of THC and was way too high for confrontation so I just held back with two other passersby to watch what would unfold."
