There was mixed reaction on social media after Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos lost his cool with a reporter following Saturday’s game.

After NBC Sports’ Jim Salisbury asked whether he could hear the boos from the crowd, Castellanos called it a “stupid question.”

Things got a bit contentious in the <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/Phillies?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#Phillies</a> clubhouse tonight during and after Nick Castellanos’ media availability and our <a href=”https://twitter.com/6abc?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@6abc</a> cameras were there. Thoughts on this exchange? <a href=”https://t.co/DcqmbIpz2e”>pic.twitter.com/DcqmbIpz2e</a>

While some defended the veteran reporter, others sided with Castellanos:

Castellanos signed with Philadelphia this past offseason on a five-year, $100 million deal, but he has fallen well short of expectations through the first half of 2022.

The 30-year-old entered Sunday with a .245 average and eight home runs in 93 games. His. .657 OPS is well short of last year’s mark of .939 when he earned an All-Star selection and some MVP votes.

It seems the frustration is starting to boil over for the player, media and fans.
