Not aware of any factual basis for the claim that "the Chinese laborers jeered" at the railroad executives.

Also calling the golden spike "a sacred object " might seem to those who are actually religious to be mocking and disrespectful of their beliefs. Historically significant, definitely, "sacred," no.
