A MUAY Thai fighter has been mocked for his new tattoo after people claimed it was misspelt.
Jimmy Vienot, 26, was quick to show off his new inking to his adoring fans – only to be told that it actually translated as a rude insult.
The reigning middleweight kickboxing champion shared a photo of the design that stretches across his forearm.
But his tattoo artist appeared to get one letter wrong when inking the "Muay Thai" script into his skin.
The Frenchman was soon mocked by fans on social media who were quick to point out how "one small change can make all the difference."
Instead of a tribute to the martial art, they claimed that the tattoo actually read “Kuat Thai” which translates to “Thai D**k.”

"It’s the letter ม that gives you the sound of M – Muey มวย Thai ไทย.
"The letter ฆ gives you the sound of C and this meaning could go wrong in an appropriated way. Just so you know. Fix it right."
After the snap was posted on Monday, the image has racked up more than 2,500 likes on Vienot’s Instagram page.
The middleweight kickboxer, who has more than 22k followers, is only the fourth non Thai fighter to win the Lumpinee Stadium title after romping to victory in 2019.
That same year, he also went onto win the Arena Fight title and IFMA World championship, before scooping the WMC Middleweight Championship in 2021.
