Dictionary Meaning and Definition on 'Booed'

Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Booed'


Booing is an act of showing displeasure for someone or something, generally an entertainer, by loudly yelling boo (and holding the "oo" sound) or making other noises of disparagement, such as hissing. People may make hand signs at the entertainer, such as the thumbs down sign. If spectators particularly dislike the performance they may also accompany booing by throwing objects (traditionally rotten fruit) onstage, though the objects may not be meant to physically hurt the performer.

The word "boo" is also used as to frighten or scare (also see fear or scare) someone as in this example: The ghost said "boo", frightening the unsuspecting little girl as she walked into a room in the haunted house.
