Fans are fully back, and they’ve proven they’re as ruthless as ever. San Diego Padres outfielder Tommy Pham has seen fans not holding back. Specifically, they’re taunting him about the offseason incident in which he was stabbed outside a night club, he told the San Diego Union-Tribune’s Kevin Acee.

Pham even claims he hears about it at his home park:

“Fans have been very disrespectful this year,” Pham said. “I actually saw a fan who was talking (trash) to me. I saw him outside the stadium. I said, ‘What’s up? You still want to talk that (trash)?’ He went completely blank. That just shows you people feel entitled.”

That was at Petco Park, where he said it is “common” to hear people taunt him about an offseason incident in which he was stabbed and required surgery.

Pham wants the league to step in over such abuse, much as the NBA has been trying to do with its own fans:

“I need to talk to MLB,” he said. “The vulgarity this year, the gestures, I’ve never seen it at this level. I want to know if this is just because fans have been gone for a year and now they’re back and acting a certain way. That (stuff) shouldn’t be tolerated.”

MLB  issued this statement in response:

“Preserving the safety of our on-field personnel and our fans is essential to us. We will continue to devote resources to emphasizing and enforcing the applicable laws and codes of conduct and providing an enjoyable experience at our ballparks.”

When fans aren’t spewing hate, they seem to fighting one another. Going to a game is not considered a safe space these days.

Fans have once again shown their true colors.
