Hank Williams, Jr., Booted From ESPN Football for Comparing Obama to Hitler
By Draft Day Suit on October 04, 2011
Hank Williams Jr. isn't apologizing for comparing President Obama to Adolf Hitler but he's doing an awful lot of explaining.
The country music star released a statement suggesting he was misunderstood during his initial interview on Fox News. Despite the attempt at an explanation, the reaction to his comments was swift. Laurie from Draft Day Suit writes:
ESPN announced today that Williams’s regular MNF-opening “Are you ready for some football?” tune will not play on this week’s telecast, after reports that the singer and potential Republican senatorial nominee clearly got into the hooch early, comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler on Fox & Friends today.
