Danica Patrick Asks Fans Not to Boo Her Because She’s Old & It Hurts Her Feelings (Video)
Danica Patrick is not here for your booing pleasure.
While on her way back to the garage, Patrick apparently ignored a couple of fans, which prompted them to boo her. After being booed, she decided to go back out and confront them about it.
“Since I’m old, instead of taking the booing, I want to tell you, I’m doing the very best I can,” Patrick said. “If you’re a real fan, you know that I’m not just like … my job is not to sign autographs, right? My job is to drive a car and to tell the crew chief what’s going on. I don’t appreciate the booing. It hurts my feelings.
“I’m a (expletive) person, you know what I mean? I’m a person, too. I have feelings. When you boo me, it hurts my feelings. Please just be supportive fans. I’ll do everything I can. When I came from over here, my car was over there. I can only do so much. I have to get in the car. So please understand that. I have feelings, too.”
