Hank Williams Jr. Dropped From ‘Monday Night Football’ After Obama ‘Hitler’ Remark [VIDEO]
ESPN has yanked Hank Williams Jr.’s rousing ‘Monday Night Football’ theme after the country singer compared Pres. Barack Obama to Hitler on ‘Fox & Friends.’
While discussing House Speaker John Boehner’s recent golf outing with Obama, Williams compared the friendly game to, “Hitler playing golf with [Israeli leader] Benjamin Netanyahu.” It’s safe to say that Hank and all of his rowdy friends will no longer be coming over tonight.
Williams’ 1984 hit ‘All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight’ became the basis for his famous “Are you ready for some football?” opening theme for ‘Monday Night Football.’ The theme ran on ABC’s ‘Monday Night Football’ throughout the ’80s before moving to ESPN in 2006.
Check out Hank’s controversial comments, and some of his ‘Monday Night Football’ themes over the years, below.
