Sporting events can be heated enough, but when a celebrity attends – all bets are off.
Many stars – no matter the reason and no matter the person – have met with disapproving crowd response at baseball games, football games, basketball games and more. Emma Stone and kim kardashianthat is, they were hit by consecutive whistles in October 2022.
The Birdman star and her husband, Dave McCary, were met with disapproval in Game 1 of the Wild Card Series between the New York Mets and the San Diego Padres. Sports fans at the much-anticipated game — which took place at Citi Field, the Mets’ home field — weren’t too happy with the couple’s choice of merchandise, as they opted to wear Padres uniforms in support of their home team. The pair didn’t seem fazed by the crowd’s reaction, however, with Stone even joking about the response by pretending to look surprised. They even toasted each other and clinked glasses.
The Keeping up with the Kardashians alum, for his part, was not greeted by fans at the Los Angeles Rams game against the Dallas Cowboys that same weekend. While attending the event with her son Saint — whom she shares with her ex-husband Kanye West – the audience when she appeared on the Jumbotron. (West, for his part, experienced boos of his own when he attended the 2022 Super Bowl with their oldest daughter North and Saint. The former also share daughter Chicago and son Psalm.)
“Why is everyone surprised @KimKardashian got booed at a football game?” The Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel tweeted in response to the news, criticizing the founder of KKW Beauty. “It’s an American pastime. Fans are people with daughters and sons who hope for realistic role models for their children. Football is not a superficial country of fashion. Those fans can’t be bought.”
US presidents from both sides of the aisle have also been booed at games, with both Donald Trump and Joe Biden — who are on opposite ends of the political spectrum — experience negative crowd reaction at various sporting events. Trump was greeted with jeers by baseball fans at Game 5 of the 2019 World Series, while Biden was greeted with the same boos while attending a congressional baseball game in September 2021.
