Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed by an otherwise euphoric crowd at Saturday’s star-studded Global Citizen Live concert, marking the second time in recent weeks he was heckled at a major Central Park performance.
De Blasio heard widespread jeers as he took the mic to tout New York City’s climate change initiatives in between sets from the likes of Coldplay, J-Lo and Lizzo, and appearances by Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and other dignitaries.
The lame duck Democrat was bombarded with Bronx cheers at The Homecoming Concert in Central Park last month, which was meant to signal the return of city life amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Some 60,000 fans were forced to flee to the exits as the show was abruptly cut short by severe weather threatening the Manhattan park.
Boobirds even showed up to grill the mayor at the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest this Independence Day.
