MLB star Bryce Harper goes viral after wild ‘Hawk Tuah’ celebration in Phillies loss

Bryce Harper has gone viral for a reason he may well live to regret… after replicating the viral ‘Hawk Tuah’ TikTok girl while celebrating on Friday night. 

The wild celebration sent social media into a spin, and came after Philadelphia’s star slugger hit a double in a home game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. 

Despite the 5-4 loss, Harper gave fans something to talk about over the next few days (or weeks…) as footage showed him making a fist and spitting on it, complete with the viral phrase ‘Hawk Tuah’.

The 31-year-old, seven-time All Star – who’s married, has two children and is expecting a third with his wife – was paying tribute to the mystery girl who’s blown up on social media over the last week.

In the original video, the girl is being interviewed on the street, where she is asked how she gets over a break-up, replying: ‘The only way to get over one is to get under another’.

In the next question, her response when asked for her ‘one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time’ is what has made social medias lose its collective mind.  

And now baseball fans can also be counted in that group, with thousands quickly reacting to Harper’s hilarious tribute. 

‘Bryce Harper announces he is officially joining OnlyFans,’ an MLB fan account shared alongside a clip of the moment on X.

‘Just subscribed in 0.2 seconds,’ a user joked, while another added: ‘Take all my money.’

‘Bryce Harper – IYKYK’ said someone else. 

‘He is alarmingly good at it,’ a person online pointed out.

Harper, who has a batting average of .285 this season compared to .281 in his career, said earlier this month that he wants ‘The Show’ to expand its London series into a four-team, round-robin competition in a potential idea for league executives. 

The Phillies split their two-game series against rivals, the New York Mets, at West Ham United’s London Stadium on Saturday, June 8th, and Sunday, June 9th. 

They won the first matchup of the series, 7-2, before losing 6-5, barely 24 hours later. 

Up next for Philly are the D-backs later on Saturday. The final contest of the three-game series is on Sunday before a trip to Detroit.
