Hank William Jr. has had it with the political correctness of the Hitler-ish ESPN sports television corporation. You will never hear his "Are you ready for some football" song on Monday Night Football ever again. He's refusing the to lend the economy his productive services, now, after being treated so badly for sharing his political views on Fox & Friends Monday morning. Either that, or he got fired.
Yes, ESPN has announced that it has "decided to part ways with Hank Williams, Jr," after initially suspending him for one week following his comically incoherent comparison of Obama to Hitler and forced apology. This may sound like a firing, but Williams tells a different story, one of struggle and defiance, on his website:
"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." — Hank Williams Jr
In a way we're glad this whole thing went down, since It produced Two hilarious Press releases From Haynk. But it is a truly pathetic way for the Walt Disney corporation to end Monday Night Football's most famous feature after several decades! I mean, all this over the latest dumb Fox & Friends segment? And yet Trump survives.
