US country music star Hank Williams Jr. apologized Tuesday for making comments Monday comparing US President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.
US sports network ESPN pulled Hank Williams Jr.'s theme song from its "Monday Night Football" broadcast in a rebuke.
Williams made his inflammatory statement on Fox News talk show "Fox & Friends." Grousing about Obama and Boehner playing golf together over the summer, Williams said it was like "Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu."
