BARR BOOED, SO SHE SPITS AT CROWD

SHARE BARR BOOED, SO SHE SPITS AT CROWD

Roseanne Barr grabbed her crotch and spit on the ground when she was booed at a San Diego Padres game for a shrill rendition of the national anthem in front of 30,000 baseball fans.

The comedian and star of ABC's "Roseanne" appeared to struggle Wednesday night with echo from the sound system as she sang between games of a doubleheader with the Cincinnati Reds, said Ron Seaver, the Padres' promotions director.Barr plugged her ears with her fingers at the start of the song, then sang in a shrill voice.

After the boos began, Barr grabbed her crotch and spit on the ground, said Padres pitcher Eric Show, who was on the field.

Barr's husband, Tom Arnold, later made a ceremonial pitch with no reaction, but Barr got more boos as she waved to the crowd and left with him.

Barr said she was pleased with her performance.

"I think I did great and people wanted more," she told a reporter for KFMB-TV before leaving the field. Asked about the boos, she said, "Yeah, well, just because they weren't up front."
