Reggie Jackson Calls Fans “C*cksuckers” Over Autograph Fight — WATCH VIDEO
Reggie Jackson exploded on some fans over an autograph signing on Friday, calling them “c*cksuckers.” Watch video below.
The baseball legend is in Cooperstown this weekend for Sunday’s National Baseball Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Each year, fans flock to the New York town for related events, and Jackson apparently had a run-in with some at a local restaurant. In a video obtained by TMZ, Jackson is apparently upset when one guy gets back in line even though the former player already gave him an autograph.
Jackson is seen from behind in the short clip, and is first talking calmly, before he is heard yelling, “Listen, c*cksuckers! Can’t you f*cking listen to me?” TMZ claims to have watched another video, which the site did not post, showing Jackson demanding help from security. “You guys disperse the motherf*ckers, tell them to get the f*ck away from me,” he allegedly screams. “I need a f*cking bodyguard to keep them the f*ck away.”
The situation reportedly escalated into a shoving match. Part of Jackson’s gripe seemed to be that he was not at the restaurant for an official signing, but was simply trying to have dinner. He is said to have shouted at another point, “I already signed one, and you go back to the f*cking line and come up again. That’s f*cked up. Now it’s my time to eat dinner with people I seldom see. It’s f*cked up. Pay for them like everybody else.”
Jackson tweeted about attending Hall of Fame events earlier this week, writing on Thursday, “Hey Fans I look forward toward see you all at MAB Friday and Sat with all the HOFers.” He has not, however, mentioned Friday’s incident. The slugger, nicknamed “Mr. October,” was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993. See the video below, and tell us what you think.
