De Blasio Booed at July Fourth Hot Dog-Eating Contest

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed by some spectators at the annual Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Hot Dog Eating Contest in Brooklyn’s Coney Island.

This footage, by Martin Bisi, shows several people in the audience booing the outgoing mayor, who’s seen on stage sporting a hot dog hat.

CBS New York reported that thousands of people turned out for the event, at which the defending champion Joey Chestnut won by eating 76 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Michelle Lesco won the women’s title with 30.75 hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes, CBS said. Credit: Martin Bisi via Storyful
