San Diego Padres Baseball Team Accused Of Homophobia After National Anthem Mistake Involving The City's Gay Men's Chorus

no title

Drama down in San Diego — and it's getting icky.

The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus was all set to sing the National Anthem on Saturday night at the San Diego Padres' MLB game against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but things went very wrong very quickly — and now, here comes the fall out.

The chorus, which brought one hundred singers to the game to sing the anthem, was trotted out into center field to perform — but something went wrong with the public address system at the team's home stadium, Petco Park.

At the start of their song, a recording of women singing the National Anthem was played over the loudspeaker, and it was never stopped.

The chorus then had to walk off the field after not being able to perform, and the group alleges they faced chants of "you sing like a girl" from the fans while leaving the stadium in shame.

Furthermore, the chorus alleges that the event almost didn't happen in the first place, as the Padres tried to make the entire group buy tickets to the game before they were able to perform.

Obama Gets RIPPED ON For Doing The Tango In Wake Of Brussels Attacks — Find Out Why Critics Are Calling His Dance A 'Terrible Mistake'!

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaMichelle ObamaBaseballDanceControversy

no title

Barack Obama is getting heat once again!

Over the past week, the president made an historic trip to Cuba to restore U.S. relations, and mixed business with pleasure when he attended a few innings of a baseball game on Tuesday.

But many critics weren't happy with Obama's sports spectating and on-air interview with ESPN the same day over 30 people were killed in the Brussels terror attacks.

So, after a video surfaced on Wednesday night featuring POTUS dancing the tango with Michelle Obama at a state dinner in Argentina, commentators put him on blast for his vacation-y optics in the wake of such a tragedy.

Thursday morning's panel of MSNBC's Morning Joe agreed that while Obama should not have cancelled his Argentina trip after the Brussels attack, he probably shouldn't be smiling in a Dancing With The Stars-esque photo op the day after he was doing the wave at a baseball game.

Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass said:
