After some rather unfortunate remarks about Barack Obama, John Boehner and Hitler, ESPN yanked Hank Williams Jr.’s iconic Monday Night Football intro on Monday, and for now, we don’t know what kind of future Williams’ music has on MNF.

And after releasing a somewhat-stubborn statement Monday evening that said he was just trying to make a point, he’s released another less-stubborn statement saying, well, maybe he shouldn’t have said it in the first place.

From Williams’ web site: “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.” 

This was a little more conciliatory than his previous statement when he intimated that he couldn’t understand why people who have differing views could ever play golf together. Then, he compared Obama and Boehner playing golf together to Hitler and Benjamin Netanyahu hitting the links together.

ESPN had no comment on whether Williams' song would be used on future telecasts.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s where all the controversy started.

Hey Street Hustler,

This has nothing about having the right to speak your mind. He was given that right....He is still ree and not lcked up.  His 1st amendment right was not violated.  He hid behind it like a biotch.  So would it have been ok to to tell your Gunny that the Sgt Major of the marines is a leg and is the equivalent of Hitler?  Sure you have the right to say it but when you are getting your ass smoked I am pretty sure you are not going to complain about your 1st amendment being violated.  
Please dont justify your comments by saying you fought for ev everyones 1st amendment.  Your service is greatly approeciated and I understand it.  before you fire back about any anti military setiment, do some research my Avitar.

if you knew anything about anything, you would know that Hitler was a Socialist Dictator.  Obama politics are considered by the right wing to be socialist i.e. big government. The Republicans are big business and in bed with the jews who have reputations of being greedy.
Actually, if you knew anything about anything, you would know that Jewish Americans, although greedy in the eyes of people like you, are by no means "in bed" with big business or the Republican party, for that matter. Jews have always swayed heavily towards the Democratic party and their views about big business. If you think that is going to change, than you are about as clueless as Hank!
