Super Bowl champion Harrison Butker took a veiled shot at President Joe Biden at the White House on Tuesday.

Butker, a kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, sported an anti-abortion tie during his team’s visit to the White House. Butker’s custom tie has the Latin phrase Vulnerari Praesidio stitched into the fabric, meaning “Protect the most vulnerable,” according to Life News.

Images circulated online of Butker standing with his teammates behind the president with the tie in full view.

Butker, a devout Catholic who is outspoken about his anti-abortion convictions, appeared to wear the tie to criticize Biden’s view of abortion, a choice Twitter users noticed.

“Two-time Catholic Super Bowl champ [Butker] savagely photo-bombed Joe with a BASED pro-life message stitched right into his custom tie,” one said.

“Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker showed up to the most pro-abortion White House administration in U.S. history wearing a pro-life tie that largely translates from Latin to ‘protect the vulnerable,’” another user tweeted.

Butker made the rounds on social media for his commencement speech in May at the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he gave some advice to the graduates in attendance.

“Sadly, we are encouraged to live our lives for ourselves to move from one thing to another with no long-term commitment,” Butker said. “To have loyalty for nothing but ourselves and sacrifice only when it suits our own interests. This loneliness is rooted in the lies being sold about self-dependence and prioritizing our career over important relationships.”

In April, the Biden administration filed an emergency motion to the Supreme Court, requesting that it override a Texas judge’s ruling to restore access to an abortion drug. The filing proved to be successful as the Supreme Court decided to block the abortion pill’s restrictions set by the lower courts on April 21, Reuters reported.
