We hope your publicist has got their game face on, Tony! Some serious damage control is imminent after these comments.
Yesterday, Tony Bennett appeared on the Howard Stern Show to discuss his new album Duets II, but the conversation ended up heading into a more controversial direction.
Here's what Tony had to say about 9/11, when the subject of the World Trade Center attacks came up:
"…But who are the terrorists? Are we the terrorists or are they the terrorists? Two wrongs don't make a right."
"They flew the plane in, but we caused it, because we were bombing them and they told us to stop."
There are certainly varying opinions on what caused 9/11, but we have a feeling that people DON'T want to hear this right now…ESPECIALLY since the 10 year anniversary of the tragic event took place so recently.
Maybe you should have stuck to a discussion of your new album, Tony. Just sayin'!
