News that President Donald Trump lost his re-election bid to Democratic challenger Joe Biden wasn't welcome only in the U.S. Around the world, people cheered Biden's victory and watched celebrations in American cities.
As a reporter from BFM TV, a French news network, tried to report back to his home country on Biden's win, he was interrupted by an American with some pretty strong feelings about the European country.
The clip has gone viral thanks to the man's enthusiasm and truly awful French accent.

The clip, which featured the man's hilarious mangling of the French language, prompted an online outpouring of love between French and American citizens.
@BTSOriented @dan_abramov I automatically love any example of French people and American people making fun of each… https://t.co/g2kUrcrrjO— Luke Pighetti (@Luke Pighetti)1604785478.0
The newscaster in the clip seemed delighted and taken aback by the American's awkward compliments.
