De Blasio Gets Brutal Reception from New Yorkers at Columbus Day Parade: 'Go to Hell'
Angry residents not happy about Mayor's appearance
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's presence at this year's Columbus Day Parade was not what some New yorkers were happy about.
Some attendees hurled obscenities at De Blasio, with one angry resident shouting, “F*ck you, you piece of sh*t," according to the New York Post.
Another individual shouted:
“F–k you de Blasio. You piece of garbage."
“Get out of here you piece of sh*t. You’re garbage.”
One East Villager resident expressed anger at de Blasio's presence, the Post reported:
“I love my New York people. I love my blue. I’m tired of the crime. I’m tired of him dividing people,” he said.
“He can go to god—n hell.”
De Blasio’s unwelcoming reception comes amid news he is planning on running for governor of New York.
The New York Times reported:
Mr. de Blasio, who has been a polarizing figure during his two terms in office, has also sounded out trusted former aides about their interest in working on a potential campaign, according to two people who are familiar with those contacts, and has made other overtures to labor leaders about a possible bid. His longtime pollster conducted a private survey to assess Mr. de Blasio’s appeal beyond New York City.
This isn't the first time de-Blasio has faced vitriol from residents.
Last month, Hundreds of angry New Yorkers took to the streets of Manhattan chanting “F**k Joe Biden – and DeBlasio!”
De Blasio also faced massive boos during the Global Citizen Live concert.
It marked the second time de Blasio was heckled at a significant Central Park performance.
