Mexico City: A sunglasses company sponsoring Mexican Formula 1 driver Sergio Perez created a children’s charity on Thursday to make amends after angering the star with a tweet mocking Mexicans following Donald Trump’s election as US president.

Hawkers took out a full-page advertisement in the newspaper El Universal announcing it will contribute $25,000 a year to the Dear Sergio x Hawkers Foundation to help impoverished children in Mexico. The tweet made a reference to Trump’s vow to make Mexico pay for a giant wall along the border with the US to stop illegal immigration.
