Fan calls her retarded son “retarded.”
She’s demanding the Yankees apologize recognize her son’s “disability.”
Fuck her. On second thought, I wouldn’t.
Angelica DiMarco, from Harrison, New York, was attending Tuesday night’s Yankees v Cincinnati Reds game with her husband and her four-year-old son, Luciano.
DiMarco told News 12 that Luciano has sensory issues and doesn’t understand social cues, which sometimes makes him unruly. He even wears a helmet to stop him from banging his head.
In the clip, seen hundreds of thousands of times on Facebook, an adult male fan – wearing glasses and a gray University of Vermont sweater turns around and say, ‘Your f****** child’s retarded.’
It is not immediately understood what caused the fan’s outburst but DiMarco has one idea.
‘He may have kicked a fan’s seat that was sitting in front of us with excitement,’ she said.
What made the situation worse for DiMarco was not getting any help from Yankee Stadium security.
‘When he said that…[Luciano] covered his ears and started hysterical crying and shaking, while Yankee security, ushers just stood there,’ she said.
‘We asked for a place for him to go. We were told if we leave the stadium, we can’t come back in.’
On the New York Yankees official website, it says using foul or abusive language is strictly prohibited at baseball games.
DailyMail.com has reached out to the Yankees for comment.
Until DiMarco hears back, she said her family will not be attending anymore Yankees games until they recognize her son’s disability.
