Kate Upton is the wife of Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.
In addition to that, she is also an internationally-renowned supermodel and one of the most famous women on the planet today.
As such, her various actions often fall under intense scrutiny. And that is precisely what happened during a recent World Series game between the Astros and Philadelphia Phillies.
In a now-viral video that the internet couldn’t get enough of, Upton could be seen getting into it with a Phillies fan:

Fans reacted to the visual immediately, especially given the reputation of the type of folks who attend Philadelphia sporting events:

The funniest thing (also the saddest) about this tweet is the number of salty or fake bravado from guys.

This actually isn’t the first time in recent weeks Upton has blown up online in this particular fashion. Her provocative outfit choice from an earlier game also made quite the impression on spectators.
Ditto with her unforgettable recent pool day video.
Upton is a huge star in her own right, so it’s unsurprising that she can steal the show even at an event as big as the World Series. That said — it’s still pretty funny to see.

What will she ultimately go viral for next?
Time will tell.
