Public Address Announcer Tells Fans to ‘Shut Up’ During Game [LISTEN]
He didn't hold back.
Listen as the public address announcer at a high school basketball game near Milwaukee tells fans in attendance to "Shut Up."
His announcement came after a non-call when fans expressed their displeasure with the officiating. The man behind the microphone not only told the fans to "Shut Up," but also invited them to put on a referee shirt if they think they can do better.
Here's what the announcer had to say when fans/parents started to address the officials on the floor:
"I would like to take this opportunity to remind all fans, and I should’ve done this a lot earlier, shut up! The WIAA is always looking for officials, and since you do such a good job from the stands, get on the floor, wear a striped shirt and do it yourselves,"
Look, we've all been to sporting events in our life when fans go overboard and at times get very loud, but I have never heard a PA Announcer tells fans to "Shut Up," but it happened and you can listen below.
Note in the audio below that some fans in attendance did applaud the announcer when he addressed some of the unruly fans in the stands at this game.
