He was too late with the an apology and for comparing President Obama to Hitler, Hank Williams Jr. is now without a job.
Hank Williams Jr. will now longer be the voice you hear before Monday Night Football games. "Are You Ready For Some Football?" Well I am, but Hank Williams Jr. won't be anymore.
“We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams, Jr.,” ESPN said in a statement. “We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of Monday Night Football has always been about the games and that will continue.”
Hank Williams Jr., however is trying to say it is his decision and he quit; “After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You [ESPN] stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment, Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and all my rowdy friends ARE OUT OF HERE! It’s been a great run.”
Yea, sure you quit Hank. You would have said this Monday night when you said you were misunderstood and then when you "apologized" Tuesday.
Honestly, I think it sucks someone was fired for speaking his mind but comparing a U.S. President to one of the worst humans that ever lived, on public tv, and not in your living room, is just stupid.
What do you think of ESPN's decision to can Hank Williams Jr.?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Let's Get Rowdy
Perez Hilton is pushing on, suing the Black Eyed Peas manager Polo Molina. The blogger filed a civil lawsuit today for $25,000. Wow. That is one costly little boo boo. I've seen bigger shiners on little boys man up more than Perez has.
The suit is stating Perez is seeking to protect his freedom of speech and that he was attacked because he made critical comments about the Black Eyed Peas new CD. No, it's not dude. It's because you called him a f***** 10 times to his face. Doesn't make it right, but be honest FF. Perez is suing for emotional distress.
Molina, the Manager who allegedly thru the punch had a DUI in Orange County and could be facing up to 6 months in jail as he was on probation.
Here is the legal statement made by Perez's lawyer:
"Perez Hilton files this lawsuit to protect his freedom of speech and seeks legal redress against those who have physically assaulted him because they do not like his review of their album. Whether you love Perez or hate him, he is entitled to his freedom of speech without fear of physical violence. This lawsuit will make the statement that violence is never the answer."
Just want to add he still has not apologized to GLAAD for his use of the word F****. He is losing the public battle and he will lose the battle in court only because he has not been honest since the start of this.
Straight up dude. This was not a hate crime. This was you being stupid and not admitting you are wrong crime. Violence is not the answer but neither is stupidty FF.-Dr.FB
