Hank Williams Jr. went on Fox and Friends yesterday and compared Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.

ESPN soon pulled his “Are you ready for some football?” song from its Monday Night Football broadcast.

Today, on his personal website, Williams issued an apology (via Yahoo!):

“I have always been very passionate about Politics and Sports and this time it got the Best or Worst of me. The thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by simply made me Boil over and make a Dumb statement and I am very Sorry if it Offended anyone. I would like to Thank all my supporters. This was Not written by some Publicist.”

ESPN has not decided whether or not they will run his song next week.
