Brad Joseph is the Cubs fan who insulted New Jersey Governor Chris Christie while at a Chicago Cubs game over the weekend.
According to reports, Brad Joseph yelled at Christie, calling him a a “hypocrite” and also adding that Christie sucked.”
The politician who was enjoying a bowl of Nachos while watching the game, didn’t stay quiet and yelled back at Joseph calling him a “big shot” –which was caught on camera.
The incident took place at Miller Park over the Milwaukee Brewers, Chicago Cubs game. As it is known, Christie is a big baseball fan and his son currently works for the Brewers.
The governor’s popularity has surely been decreasing, a few weeks ago Christie was loudly booed at a Mets game after catching a foul ball and giving it to a child behind him.
Joseph’s whose relative is WISN 12 NEWS reporter, Ben Hutchison, said in a statement
he called Christie a hypocrite after Christie passed him on the stairs. “He then turned around and walked all the way back towards me and got up in my face for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only about 30 seconds or a minute,”
“First he told me, ‘Why don’t you have another beer?’ which I thought was a decent come back, and I thought that was kind of funny,” “Then he started calling me a tough guy.”
The bearded fella said he called Christie “a hypocrite because I thought it needed to be said.”
“He is a public official and this is America and I think we have the right to say what you believe as long as it’s not crude or profane,” Joseph said.
