Video: Jose Canseco publicly scolds fan for trying to meet him

Jose Canseco remains one of the most recognizable figures in sports even nearly 20 years after he last played, and he is obviously used to being approached in public. However, the former MLB slugger does not always approve of the way people try to grab his attention.

Canseco was at a Top Golf recently when a man tried to call him over to meet him. Canseco didn’t appreciate the way the fan used his finger to signal for him, so he berated the guy. It was all caught on video, and Canseco shared the footage on his Instagram page.

“If you see me in public, DO NOT call me over with a finger like I’m your small child in trouble or a chick at the bar! ⁣If you see me in public and want a photo, an autograph, or just too meet me, you come over to me. I’m more than willing to and enjoy meeting you guys,” Canseco wrote.

The fan explained that he was trying to subtly get Canseco’s attention without barging into his private swing suite and interrupting, which is understandable. Unless there’s more to the story, it seemed like Jose overreacted a bit. That would hardly be a surprise, of course.

Remember, this is the same Canseco who recently went off about A-Rod supposedly cheating on Jennifer Lopez with Jose’s ex-wife. The guy’s a loose cannon, so it takes some courage to even try talking to him in public.
