Brad Paisley co-hosted the Country Music Awards with Carrie Underwood on Wednesday night and one of his comments sent PC liberals into a rage. Paisley plugged ABC’s new comedy, “Black-ish,” by saying:
“Everybody, there’s usually a show on Wednesdays, a new show that I’ve fallen in love with. It’s so funny. And so if any of you tuned into ABC tonight expecting to see the new show ‘Black-ish,’ yeah, this ain’t it. In the meantime, I hope you’re all enjoying White-ish.”
Twitter immediately blew up with criticism for the country singer’s joke.
Rule #1: if you have to ask someone if the joke seemed racist, it probably was racist #BradPaisley

While Paisley was being chastised by the PC Police, an overwhelming amount of social media user’s defended his joke.
Having a show called Black-ish IS racist. Making a joke about it IS NOT. Brad Paisley said nothing wrong. — SPURS ARE CHAMPS (@crimsonphoenix6) November 6, 2014

Dear America, Brad Paisley’s “Blackish” joke was not a racist joke. Grow the hell up and stop looking for reasons to be offended.

Sorry, Twitter, you’re being babies. Brad Paisley isn’t racist. He told a joke. A truthful joke. Nashville is white-ish. #accidentalracist

Even funnier than Paisley’s joke, was the reaction it garnered from the liberal community, which is still trying to get their collective panties out of a wad. Let us know what you think of Paisley’s hilarious joke in the comments section.
