LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man seen yelling at a woman in a viral video from the Donald Trump rally in Louisville on Tuesday has been discharged from the Marine Corps Delayed Entry Program.

A Facebook page with the name "Joseph Pryor" had a screen-grab photo from the viral video at the Trump rally that showed a man yelling at a woman as she was being kicked out of the event.

The United States Marine Corps recruiting office said, effective March 2, Pryor had been discharged from their Delayed Entry Program, which is a program for Marine hopefuls getting them ready to ship out to boot camp.

The Marine Corps Recruiting Station in Louisville released the following statement: "Joseph Pryor demonstrated poor judgment in his use of social media that associates him with a racially charged altercation at a political rally. Hatred toward any group of individuals is not tolerated in the Marine Corps and he is being discharged from our delayed entry program effective yesterday"

Multiple attempts to reach Pryor for an interview were unsuccessful. His Facebook cover photo has since been changed.
