Jason Aldean attracts criticism from UFC president after national anthem performance 'snub'

  Jason Aldean attracts criticism from UFC president after national anthem performance 'snub' Country singer Jason Aldean has been slammed by UFC president Dana White for allegedly turning down the chance to sing the national anthem at a fight. The singer/songwriter was onstage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last weekend (01Oct17) when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Las Vegas audience, killing 59 people and injuring more than 500 others. Aldean scrapped a string of tour dates following the massacre, but performed a touching tribute to the victims on Saturday Night Live (SNL) on Saturday (07Oct17) instead, singing I Won’t Back Down by Tom Petty, who died on Monday after suffering a cardiac arrest. However, White told TMZ Sports he was furious that Aldean had agreed to the SNL gig despite turning down the chance to perform the national anthem at UFC 216 in Las Vegas on Saturday (07Oct17). The 48-year-old said 15 survivors of the shooting were in the audience to watch the fight between Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee at the T-Mobile Arena, along with hundreds of emergency services first responders. White told TMZ that Aldean's reps allegedly turned down the offer, and said he was too shaken up from the shooting and "might never perform live again". Despite that remark, Aldean instead performed on SNL - a move which has infuriated White. "His image was more important than coming back to Vegas and playing for the people who are his fans and who got shot watching him play," he told TMZ Sports. "F**k you Jason Aldean. Stay out of Vegas.

It was a bad choice of words then, and a bad choice of words now.

Jason Momoa is getting shredded on social media today after a joke he made in 2011 about rape began making the rounds.

The actor was on a 2011 Comic-Con panel for his "Game of Thrones" character when he was asked what he loves about fantasy shows. 

"As far as sci-fi and fantasy, the genre, there's so many things you can do [with it]," he said. "Rip someone's tongue out of their throat and get away with it, rape beautiful women."

Clearly, this was meant as a joke and the crowd laughed loudly. The cast and crew of "Game of Thrones" grimaced and put their heads down and covered their faces as the crowd laughed. Jason, trying to keep it light, said, "next question," while covered his face with his jacket.

  Jason Aldean returns to Las Vegas to visit victims of mass shooting Jason Aldean and his pregnant wife Brittany Kerr returned to Las Vegas on Sunday (08Oct17) - a week after the deadly mass shooting there which claimed the lives of 58 people. The country singer had been performing at the Route 91 Harvest music festival when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire on the crowds from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, killing hordes and injuring more than 500. Jason, who ran off stage to safety when the shooting began, has spoken of his horror at the devastating attack, and travelled back to Sin City to pay his respects to those who lost their lives in the tragedy as well as meeting survivors of the shooting. Brittany, who was also at the festival when the shooting occurred, shared a picture of herself and Jason with their backs to the camera and arms wrapped around one another as they looked at the Mandalay Bay hotel. "Feels surreal being back in Vegas today," she wrote. "Visiting some of the strongest people we have ever met fighting the toughest battle of them all for their lives. "You have helped us try to begin to start the healing process by seeing the strength each one of you have. Thank you for today. We will never forget. #vegasstrong." Jason also paid a visit to those still hospitalised at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada, with the hospital’s Twitter account sharing a picture and post detailing his time chatting to the victims.
