Washington Nationals rookie Bryce Harper was answering questions from reporters last night in the locker room after beating the Toronto Blue Jays. A Canadian reporter asked him if he was going to celebrate by by having a beer. Harper is only 19 years old and in the United States, a person cannot legally drink until they are at least 21. In Canada, people can drink beer when they’re 19.
Harper, never one to miss the opportunity to act like a dick, responded to the lighthearted, jovial question with, “That’s a clown question, bro.”
It’s a legitimate question. The United States, the land of the free and the brave, doesn’t allow people like Harper to have a beer like a regular person. In the United States, you are considered an adult when you are 19, you just don’t have the same rights and privileges as everyone else.
Instead of just answering the question, he decided to act like a jerk.
