As expected, Hank Williams Jr.’s services are no longer needed at ESPN Monday Night Football after he went on FOX News and compared Obama to Hitler. Right. Because Obama has killed six million people. Makes sense. TMZ reports:
The Monday Night party is over for Hank Williams … ESPN has just fired the singer, days after he compared President Obama to Hitler. ESPN had already pulled the song from Monday’s game while they mulled Williams’ fate — but now, it’s permanent. ESPN released a statement, saying, “We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue.” As we previously reported, Williams went on Fox News earlier this week, and referred to Obama and Joe Biden as “the enemy.” He later called his comments “dumb” — but never really apologized for saying them.
Teabaggers and Republicans Everybody (including Hank himself) has been on the Internet today saying that his 1st Amendment rights have been violated. Jesus. Let me explain this to everyone. The 1st Amendment doesn’t apply when the government isn’t involved. If you represent a private corporation and you say something stupid to millions of people then they have every right to fire you. If Hank Williams, Jr. had said that on FOX News then Obama had a sniper shoot him, then yes, his 1st Amendment rights would have been violated. If you want to say you’re defending the Constitution, I don’t know, maybe you should understand it first.
