    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani did not exactly get a warm welcome when he decided to celebrate his 74th birthday at Yankee Stadium on Monday.

    The crowd could be heard on a video posted to social media booing the former mayor when an announcer wished Giuliani a happy birthday during the Yankees' 5-1 loss to the Houston Astros.


    "The New York Yankees wish a very happy birthday to Mayor Giuliani," the announcer said over the loudspeaker.

    That proclamation was immediately met with hundreds of jeers for the avid Yankees fan who was once dubbed "America's Mayor," a moniker Giuliani earned for his response to the 9/11 attacks.

    In April, Giuliani joined the team of lawyers working for President Donald Trump amid the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. He has garnered headlines for his sharp attacks on the Justice Department and drawn the president's ire for a series of scattershot interviews. 

    Giuliani hasn't commented on the boos.
