Most Philly DNC story so far: Sean Hannity booed out of Wawa?

We couldn’t confirm it. But it’s not that far of a stretch to imagine this could’ve happened.

Pols, journalists and celebs of all persuasion in town for the Democratic National Convention are quickly learning about the quirks of our city. There’s the overwhelming pee smell of the Broad Street Line subway, plus the fact that we still use tokens. There’s the debate about whether to Whiz or #NeverWhiz. And there’s figuring out the ordering system at Wawa.

We have photographic evidence (see above) that conservative commentator Sean Hannity had a Wawa moment last night, when he was sighted ogling the touchscreen after the first day of the Wells Fargo Center events wrapped up. But did Hannity return again the next morning?

This being Philly during the DNC, it’s not that far of a stretch to imagine this actually could’ve happened to the conservative talk show host. We called the Wawa on Walnut Street in Center City, and visited too — and we could not confirm that this happened.

Update: The man himself has denied any actual booing occurred, chalking up the misinterpretation to “one customer who seemed to be having a really rough night.”

But none of that stopped this Twitter user from vividly imagining the scenario:

(Yeah, it probably didn’t happen. But still.)
