Paddy The Baddy Hits Out At 'Flag Sh***ers' For Booing You'll Never Walk Alone

Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett has hit out at ‘flag sh***ers’ for booing Liverpool song ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, saying their behaviour is ‘hypocritical’. Watch a video of the moment here:


Viral footage shows a crowd of people at Royal Ascot booing as the track played, with a caption that read: “Ascot crowd booing YNWA, totally here for it.” 

The Twitter user who posted the clip added: “Scousers rattled on here by a bit of ‘booing’, the irony is beautiful.” 

While some people agreed with the sentiment - one saying they 'would have walked out' if they heard the song' - many others criticised the booing.

This includes Liverpudlian MMA star Pimblett, who retweeted the video, writing: "I expect that most of these flag sh***ers booing are the type of ppl that got offended by scousers booing the National anthem. Now here they are the ones doing the booing. How hypocritical is that ay.”

Agreeing, someone else said the booing was 'pathetic' while others claimed they weren't 'rattled', with one adding: "Being hated by a bunch of toffs with bowler hats is a badge of honour for us."

The song is originally from 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel, but is associated with Liverpool FC after it was covered by local group Gerry and the Pacemakers, who turned the tune into a chart hit.

During the coronavirus pandemic, the song became something of an anthem for medical staff, first responders and others affected by the virus - and was even sent to the top spot of the UK charts when it was covered by Captain Tom Moore, Michael Ball and the NHS Voices of Care Choir.


It took number one after selling 82,000 units (compared to its competitor, 'Blinding Lights' by The Weeknd, which sold 69,000 units), with all proceeds from the single going to NHS Charities Together.

The late Captain Tom said at the time: "What wonderful news to receive today, a No.1 single and a record breaker too - my grandchildren can't believe I am a chart-topper!

"I have to thank Michael Ball, the NHS Voices of Care Choir and everyone behind the scenes, who shared their talents and expertise in order to raise money for the NHS, to whom we owe so much.

"And, of course, the public for buying the single and donating - we're in this together, and I am forever grateful for your support. And this just proves 'You'll Never Walk Alone'."
