Bally Sports' Jessica Blaylock was interviewing Vidal Brujan after his hit against the Cardinals

Fans have criticized MLB star Jazz Chisholm as an “absolute idiot” for drenching a female reporter during his postgame interview Tuesday night.

Miami Marlins interviewer Jessica Blaylock was interviewing the evening’s hero, Vidal Brujan, after the win over the St Louis Cardinals, when Chisholm sneaked up behind him and unloaded an entire water cooler on the pair and a translator.

While Blaylock took it in stride during the livestream, fans on social media were left furious at the “disrespectful” move, with many insisting it went too far.

“What an asshole,” one baseball fan wrote, while another labeled him an “absolute asshole.”

Another wrote that Chisholm, who was recently voted MLB’s most overrated player in an anonymous poll conducted by his peers, is the “most disliked player” in baseball.

She unexpectedly got soaked just seconds into the interview.
