We know hockey can be a brutal sport on the ice, but during a singer's performance of a national anthem too? That's just a little bit unnecessary if you ask us.
Grammy-nominated singer Melanie Fiona sang the Canadian National Anthem before the start of the 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia and she got BOOED!
Ugh! So disrespectful!
Rightfully so, Melanie was not pleased by the hockey fans' reaction to her performance and tweeted:
"…For those who disrespected the Canadian anthem, remember, its a Canadian sport with Canadian players. Sad at the ignorance."
We totally agree! Plus, it's just rude to interrupt an artist's performance like that!
At least the majority of spectators gave her a nice round of applause at the end, but the negative nancies were still heard loud and clear! Check out her performance above!
