Dodgers fans boo L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti as he’s introduced to the crowd

Fans of Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers aren’t happy with the city’s mayor.

Democratic Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was recently greeted by a chorus of boos at Dodger Stadium, and the whole thing was caught on video, Breitbart reported.

Garcetti gets booed

The incident happened Friday during the Los Angeles Dodgers’ home opener for the new season. The Dodgers were back in Dodger Stadium to receive their World Series rings, having won the MLB championship last fall.

As the Dodgers were getting ready to raise their championship banner, several prominent individuals were introduced to the crowd, including Garcetti, and Dodgers’ owners Magic Johnson and Billie Jean King.

The mayor could be seen wearing a coronavirus mask, waving his index finger to indicate that the Dodgers are number one. While Dodgers fans likely agree with the gesture, they clearly didn’t approve of him.

When the announcer called out Garcetti’s name, fans in Dodger stadium could be heard loudly booing him. While the stadium was only operating at 24% capacity, which amounts to about 14,000 fans, you wouldn’t know that from the volume of boos.

Garcetti, at least outwardly, did not let the incident phase him, as he continued holding up the number one sign before moving on to clap as others were introduced.

COVID mishandling

While it can’t be said with 100% certainty why Los Angeles Dodgers’ fans booed Garcetti, we have a pretty good guess.

As Fox News reported, “Garcetti and embattled Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom have faced widespread scrutiny over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Critics have argued that some of the strict guidelines enacted during the pandemic were ineffective and hurt local businesses.”

Fox noted that a similar incident to the one at Dodger Stadium has taken place in other parts of the country, including the Chicago White Sox’s home opener, where residents booed Democratic Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D). Time will tell whether voters are going to boo these politicians out of office in the next election.

  3. I think the Woke Culture should apply to the people that need to wake up; Biden, Harris, Pelosi, Walters, Ocasio Cortez, Schumer, Newsome, Fauci, CNN, MSNBC, and others. All these people are so stupid. Stop talking about President Trump. Their leadership skills are terrible. They couldn’t lead a goat to water. If you are poor and you had one dollar to spare, the bastards would take it and laugh with their stupid smiles. Drain the Swamp. Or stick their dusty, crusty butts where all the crocodiles are. Ha, Ha, Ha! They need God in their miserable lives.

  4. Dumbocrat “leaders” are going to feel our wrath come 2022 2024! Vote them out. If they cheat again in future I think there will be uprising of more than just republicans; some democrats are not happy with lying biden.
