Two fingers, ya'll!
After reading reports that Hank Williams, Jr., was fired from ESPN due to his insensitive Barack Obama and Hitler comparison, he has released a statement that he QUIT!
The country singer calls his permanent separation from Monday Night Football HIS decision, writng 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.”
Wait a minute…now we're just confused. LOLz!
Despite Hank's statement, we still have a feeling it went a little more like this:
ESPN: Hey Hank, after those controversial comments you said about Obama and Hitler, we've gotta let you go, buddy.
Hank Williams, Jr: Let me go? Nobody lets me go! I'm the one that is letting go of YOU! Me, my song, and all my rowdy friends QUIT!
ESPN: So does that mean you won't want unemployment compensation?
Hank Williams, Jr: Nah, I'll still be wanting that. Can I just tell people I quit?
ESPN: Sure, Hank.
After that, it was probably just a race to see who could get to their computer first.
Whether he quit or was fired, it doesn't really matter. We're pretty sure Americans will still be ready for some football on Monday.
