Torii Hunter Upset With Newly Famous Red Sox’ Bullpen Cop, Says ‘Help Me, Then Cheer, Fool’

Steve Horgan provided the baseball world with an iconic image on Sunday night, but a certain Tiger is none too pleased with the man who absolutely makes the picture.

With his arms high up in the air, the bullpen cop celebrated David Ortiz‘s game-tying grand slam with gusto as Torii Hunter flipped over the outfield fence, heels over head. Horgan became an instant celebrity in Boston after his antics, but despite gaining a countless number of fans, the Tigers outfielder isn’t jumping on the bandwagon.

Hunter told MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince that he wished Horgan would have attempted to help him during his awkward crash to the ground, then cheered for Ortiz’s monster hit.

Update: Horgan’s new pals had his back once these comments came out, and in light of the backlash, Hunter took to Twitter to clarify that his statements weren’t meant to be taken seriously.
