VIDEO: Dodgers Pride Night Attendance recorded 49,074 people as report of stadium being empty is FAKE NEWS

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Dodgers Pride Night Attendance recorded 49,000 people as report of stadium being empty is FAKE NEWS.

Over the past several weeks, the Catholic League blanketed Los Angeles notables asking them to spread the word to their constituents not to attend the “Pride Night” game on June 16 that was slated to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a viciously anti-Catholic group of drag queens. We also took out 50 radio ads on KABC making the same request.

I am happy to say that our effort paid off. There was almost no one in the stands when the “Sisters” received their award. And the few who were there booed. This is a sweet victory.

We conducted a mass mailing to over 300 Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. We also contacted Catholic schools and universities; residences of priests and brothers; endowments, foundations and trusts; retreat houses; hospitals and healthcare systems; seminaries; convents and residences for women; Hispanic leaders; and leaders in non-Catholic religions.

As we said in our KABC radio ad, “We are not asking Catholics to boycott all games. Just this one. By doing so, we will send an unmistakable message that bigotry against Catholics should not be tolerated.”

In terms of attendance at the game, we won on that score as well. There have been four Friday night home games since mid-April, and the average attendance was 50,592. At last year’s “Pride Night” game at Dodger Stadium, 52,505 fans showed up. But at last night’s “Pride Night” game, the attendance was 49,074.

A video posted by a conservative writer to Twitter that received more than four million views, 30,000 likes and over 7,000 retweets claimed the Sisters were honored to a “mostly empty audience.”

More than 2,000 people protested the Dodger’s decision to honor the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence with a “Community Hero Award,” including a “prayerful procession” outside Dodger Stadium, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Actor Kevin T. Williams said the game’s was “like every other night,” suggesting it was sold out and that only one-third of seats were empty. Attorney Ron Filipkowski suggested the empty seats shown in the video are a result of protestors blocking access to Dodger Stadium.

CRUCIAL QUOTE
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts responded to the backlash on Friday, suggesting, “We’re not always going to agree with everyone’s decisions in life,” before adding he thinks “we should still all be able to coexist.”

Republicans are lying and saying Dodgers Stadium was “empty” last night during Pride Night.

Their evidence? Videos and photos taken before the game.

In reality, the game was sold out and photos and videos taken during the game show a packed house. Data shows that the Dodgers recorded an attendance of 49,074, slightly HIGHER than its league-leading average of 47,800.

Republicans lie about everything.
