blowing up social media. he said w protesting wrongdoings against african americans and minorities in the u.s. tonight his action is drawing all of that attention. we've gone through several hundreds of tweets now. read a couple of them for you here. troy says they should fire him for not standing. he is a paid professional. i agree with him 100% and appreciate his honesty no matter what anyone else thinks. that's a true leader to stand up what you believe in even when others don't. barbara says standing for any flag in any country shows respect. not standing is shameful and disgraceful. just three of hundreds. i posted this and it's just getting so many comments. >> it's the kind of thing, of course. big talker. this guy we're about to talk about, another big talker. bryce harper. one thing you can say about him, he wears his emotions on his sleeves. that's for sure. just ask the umpire in today's game. we'll hear from the face of the franchise about his blowup this afternoon.
the actions of the for the nationals who forced extra innings baseball against the rockies thanks to a jayson werth double. but the only thing people are talking about right now is how bryce harper behaved. tied at 4, bottom of the 10th, for harper who's known to have a testy side. he had the chance to be the hero but when the home plate ump called him out on strikes, he blew up. oh, yeah. bat, helmet, everything. game unraveled from there. top of the 11th, the bullpen gave up two two-run homers. nats lose 5-4. here's bryce talking about his tirade. >> going in to it, didn't want to get ejected. but when the umpire makes a mistake in that big of a situation, that's just not good. like i said, i wanted to see the last pitch. could have possibly not played the 11th or the 12th or
