Joey Chestnut Knocks Down A Protester On The Way To Victory

To no one’s surprise, JOEY CHESTNUT won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest AGAIN yesterday. But this time the competition didn’t just come from the other eaters.
A protester from the animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere got a little too close, and Joey put him down pretty hard.
Joey won his 15th title in the last 16 years, but he “only” downed 63 wieners. That’s way off his record of 76, but he was still 20 dogs ahead of his closest competitor.
