ARSENAL'S shamed hippy crack stars were mocked by fans who threw balloons onto the pitch during their game against Huddersfield this afternoon.
The Sun told how players including Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng and Alexandre Lacazette – who were both in action – inhaled nitrous oxide at a wild party before the start of the season.

Matteo Guendouzi – who according to Piers Morgan should have been better protected by the senior players – was also part of Unai Emery's side at the Emirates.
As well as a number being punched around the stands, one even drifted in the direction of star striker Aubameyang, who was wise enough to ignore it this time.
The Gunners stars were shown enjoying a boozy bash at a plush London club in August – just days before the start of the season.
Nitrous oxide gas can cause coordination problems, heart attacks and even death.

Seventy girls were specially invited to join the stars the private bash in the exclusive Tape club in London’s West End — where the stars ran up a bill of between £25,000 and £30,000.
The drinks included £2,500 Hennessy VS Scotch, £2,000 Dom Perignon Champagne and a magnum of £2,000 Ciroc Vodka.
Despite the transgressions, Emery resisted severely punishing those players shown in the footage.
An Arsenal statement said: “The players will be spoken to about this — and reminded of their responsibilities as representatives of the club.”

A source who was at the party told how she was shocked by what she saw.
She said: "Boxes of ‘hippy crack’ canisters were brought in and the players were blowing up balloons and inhaling.
“They were off their heads on the gas — some of them appeared to pass out. It got pretty wild.
“Ozil looked out of it at one point. He took a big draw on a balloon then seemed to lose consciousness and slide down in his seat.
“The young player with the curly hair was also encouraged to have a go and the effect was even worse.
