Nationals prospect Bryce Harper became a media and fan target when he appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated at age 16 in 2009. Since then, he’s been ejected from the JUCO World Series, worn a faux hawk haircut, blown a kiss to an opposing pitcher, and named his puppy “Swag.” After that laundry list of offenses, it’s easy to see why he’s so despised and why he closed his Twitter account to avoid giving haters more ammunition.

The good news for Harper detractors is if you don’t like the guy, you’re not alone. During a radio interview on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly Thursday, Washington D.C. radio host Chad Dukes called Harper a “douchebag.”

Dukes was talking with Tony Bruno and Harry Mayes about the Nats’ FU Philly campaign when he dropped the d-bag bomb on Bryce for repping the Dallas Cowboys in the land of Redskins fans.

Pay close attention around the :25 second mark in the audio below to hear it:

Yup, the kid is disliked even in his hometown. It’s really a shame too — Harper’s so good, I want to like him, but he makes it nearly impossible.
