Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer was shouted down at a book promotion event in New York on Wednesday night.

Spicer was speaking at a Barnes and Noble in Manhattan when a heckler abruptly interrupted the event.

“Hey, Sean! You’re a real piece of garbage,” the protestor exclaimed. “And I hope you look around, and you see all these empty seats, and you realize even in New York City, people will not come and pay money to hear you speak.”

“Get the f**k out, a**hole” one attendee shot back at the protestor.

Despite being escorted out of the event by security, the protestor was relentless in his efforts to disparage Sean.

“It’s a garbage book, and you’re a garbage person,” the heckler concluded as he made his way down the escalator.

Sean’s trip to Manhattan is in an effort to promote his new book, “The Briefing,” which has received some harsh criticism from a select few. (RELATED:SEAN SPICER RESPONDS TO JONATHAN KARL: HE’S ‘ELITE MEDIA’)
