Musician Gets Fired After Starbucks Rant Song

In a fast paced and very catchy tune, he details the blues of working at Starbucks and dealing with the customers, but Starbucks management was not pleased. He has lost his barista position, and no word yet on a recording contract but we will keep an ear out for that. Meanwhile, watch this highly talented musician and his hilarious "Starbucks Rant Song" below, and if you are curious as to what happened to him after the song, be sure to check out Part 2 (link at end).

ESPN Fires Hank Williams Jr. For Comparing Obama to Hitler

Hank Williams Jr. has been fired by ESPN for comparing President Obama to Hitler and saying "He is the enemy!" on Fox and Friends recently, and will no longer be the opening theme music for Monday Night Football. In a statement ESPN said, "We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of 'Monday Night Football' has always been about the games and that will continue." At first he was only suspended for one game, but the political fallout turned out to be too much for millions of Americans who voiced their anger at him making the comments, and ESPN responded to the outcry and let him go.

From Hank's website you couldn't tell he was fired, he sounded almost defiant and that he quit ESPN. He also spoke out claiming his first amendment rights were violated, saying in his usual "country boy" talk, "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."

Here is an ESPN video on the issue:
