Philly Fans Boo Bruce Willis After Throwing First Pitch

Philly fans are a tough crowd to please. They’re also really fond of booing celebrity guests. Just ask Jolly Ol’ St. Nick.

Fresh off jeering at Bryce Harper for his rough go at batting earlier in the week, Citizen Bank Park attendees turned their ire towards actor Bruce Willis, whose ceremonial first pitch on Wednesday didn’t exactly land perfectly. In fact, it bounced.

Of course, Willis’ wife had a different spin on the events, agreeing that stadium-goers were instead just shouting his name.

Retweeting a post from a user who says the boos were really just chants of “Bruuuuuce,” Emma replied, “Thank you Kevin. Happy someone cleared that up.”

Why do you think Philadelphia fans are such tough critics?
