When The Tenors sang O Canada and one tenor changed the lyrics (opening the MLB All-Star game Tuesday) reaction was largely very negative.
Not one to sit quietly Canada’s own Don Cherry has weighed in and says he was offended by the change of lyrics.
He tweeted “Oh well, all the left wing weirdos in this country are happy” .
As for The Tenors, Cherry let the Canadian group off easy, except he did point out the offending tenor is in fact, American.
“I do feel sorry for the rest of the Tenors,” said Cherry. “They will be noted forever as ‘oh yeah, the Tenors, they’re the jerks that embarrassed us at the all-star game. Ah, they’re good singers but what a bunch of jerks.’
“It’s sad, it was only one, and it was done by an American.”
