Chicago Mayor Lightfoot And Gov. Pritzker Receive Boos at White Sox Game

Democratic Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot and Illinois governor J.B. Pritzker were welcomed with boos and profanities as they were introduced during the White Sox game against the Kansas City Royals.

In multiple videos shared on social media Thursday of the Guaranteed Rate Field ball park in Chicago, a crowd can be heard booing the mayor and governor as they walked out on the field.


Fans can be heard yelling things like “you suck” and “get the hell out of Chicago,” according to the video.

In one of the videos you can hear some applause and cheers when Lightfoot and Pritzker are introduced.

According to a photojournalist at the Chicago Tribune, Lightfoot and Pritzker were “booed while walking on the field before the first inning” of the Sox home opener against the Royals.

Lightfoot who reportedly is a “Sox season ticket holder,” according to Chicago Tribune reporter Gregory Pratt, has been criticized for subjecting Chicago to the worst level of crime in its history.

Pritzker has also been criticized for the restrictive COVID measures he pushed on Chicago’s citizens.
