Spectators booed first lady Jill Biden, who was in attendance at the Philadelphia Eagles’ Sunday night primetime football game.

Biden was in attendance at the game against the Dallas Cowboys to promote the White House’s Cancer Moonshot initiative.

On the field, she was joined by cancer patients and survivors.

“It’s a special night for this Philly girl – I get to cheer on my @Eagles alongside these brave cancer survivors and their families,” Biden tweeted. “Thank you @NFL for raising awareness through Crucial Catch. We all have a role to play in ending cancer as we know it. #CancerMoonshot.”

According to Fox News, when the first lady entered the field, she was greeted with boos.

Cantankerous Philadelphia sports fans are well-known. During a late-season game in 1968, Eagles fans booed and threw snowballs at a man dressed as Santa Claus who appeared on the field during halftime.

“You got booed and the crowd chanted Let’s go Brandon,” one user tweeted.

The Eagles won 26-17 over the Cowboys.
