Well, that didn't last long.

After the social media space (especially in Mexico and US Latinolandia) went bonkers early Sunday morning to celebrate the stunning victory by Juan Manuel Márquez over Manny Pacquiao in a non-title fight (video below), once Márquez got congratulated by Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto and Márquez dedicated his victory to Peña Nieto, the part ended rather quickly with #ChingaTuMadreMarquez (F Your Mom, Marquez) trending globally on Twitter.

Let's just say that Peña Nieto isn't that popular these days in Mexico, and the latest #1DMx protests against the president have left an ugly stain on the country. Márquez went from superstar hero to superstar goat in just hours. And this is is how we feel.
