NFL Fans Ruin Make-a-Wish Moment

4/23/2010 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It was supposed to be a special moment for a boy who wished to announce the Pittsburgh Steelers pick at last night's NFL draft ... instead he was greeted with an anti-Ben Roethlisberger chant.


As 15 year-old Leukemia patient Zachary Hatfield approached the podium in his Steelers jersey, the crowd began to chant "SHE SAID NO ... SHE SAID NO!!!!"

Despite the crowd, Zachary still announced the draft pick like a true champ.

what a bunch of ignorant c*nts these people are. America, you should be proud of who you have become. The levels of ignorance have reached an all-time low. It is being flaunted for the world to see on message boards everywhere on the net. From TMZ to CNN the message boards are so full of hate and racism and ignorance. Then you people think you are at the top of the 'world food chain'.

What a complete and total waste of human space these frikken people are! It was about the BOY, not about the TEAM! I bet these are the same IDIOTS who protested the gay Marine's funeral.



Some people's kids.....

How awful! Im a huge Steelers fan and I dont support whatever Ben did or didnt do. Personally at this point I think hes a gret football player, but very possibly a horrible person. But i dont know, we may never know what really happened.
But in this case, this moment was supposed to be about a make a wish foundation kid! a terminally ill kid! I cant believe these jerks ruined that moment for the kid! I really hope this poor guy gets a new wish or that the Steelers do something really nice for him.

Wow, people are jerks. I don't even have words for how crappy I think this is. Regardless of whether or not Ben did what he is accused of, this poor kid is NOT Ben and shouldn't be taunted like that. F*ing *******$

Very inconsiderate by those "fans" for the heckling, but absolute incompetence by the NFL for setting the whole thing up without realizing this would happen.

Ignorant crowd. Pathetic when a 15 year old kid shows more class than every adult in that room, combined.



The crowd of jeerer's: WHO GIVES A SH*T WHAT YOU THINK? Shut your hole for a godd*amned minute and show some class for once, you pathetic pigs waste. So you chanted at a politician? Whoopdee *****n doo! Proud of yourself, are you? It figures you classless as*wipes.
