While co-hosting the CMA Awards with Carrie Underwood on Wednesday night, country music star Brad Paisley cracked a racial joke that some viewers are criticizing as “racist.”
The joke was partially a plug for ABC’s new comedy, “Black-ish,” which airs on the network Wednesday nights.
“If you were looking for Black-ish tonight, yeah, this ain’t it. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy White-ish,” Paisley joked.
Some people dismissed the so-called controversy, while others accused Paisley of telling one of the “most biggest racist jokes of all time.”
