Toby Keith Launches Expletive-Laced Tirade Against Ethan Hawke

LAS VEGAS — Ethan Hawke might want to avoid crossing paths with Toby Keith in the near future.

The country star lit into the actor for an article Hawke wrote in the new issue of Rolling Stone about Kris Kristofferson. In it, Hawke refers to a blowup Kristofferson had with an unnamed country star back in 2003 that sounds a lot like Toby Keith.

But a furious Keith, speaking backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards, said it wasn't true, and added that Hawke did not name him in the story because he did not want to face him later.

"I don't know Ethan Hawke. Ethan Hawke wanted to do some kind of superficial Rolling Stone article. And he did everything he could to make his story the greatest story ever in Rolling Stone," Keith said. "And it was a fictitious (expletive) lie. O.K?

Have to laugh that Faux News calling Toby Keith’s tirade “expletive laced” when my excerpt from Ethan Hawke’s own article is FULL of (fake) expletives against Mr. Keith who crime seems to have been supporting this nation and troops after the 9-11-2001 attacks

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtesy_of_the_Red,_White,_&_Blue_(The_Angry_American)

On March 24, 2001, Keith’s father, H.K. Covel, was killed in a car accident. That event and the September 11, 2001 attacks prompted Keith to write the song “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American)”, a song about his father’s patriotism and faith in the USA. At first, Keith refused to record the song and only sang it live at his concerts for military personnel.

It’s what they do, blacklist those who are not politically correct.

And the Reds have the audacity to proclaim that Communists couldn’t get work in Hollywood. The blacklist went the other way. Supposed “blacklisted” writers continued to work in Hollywood under pseudonyms. The public was shielded from the information.

“You know what Waylon Jennings said about guys like him?” he whispered. I shook my head. “They're doin’ to country music what pantyhose did to finger-f!ckin’.”

I don't doubt a word of it and would have paid to have been there.

Can’t say I’m a Kris Kristofferson fan either.

Nor Steve Earle. Nor other pinko country singers.

He’s actually written some well received novels and screenplays.

"Probably deserves it though.

Take my word for it. He deserves it. They all deserve it.

Am I the only person to have never heard of these people? Well uncool me!

I'm also a proud member of the uncool. I have heard a little about these two people, but it's not because I wanted to.

And he was great in Training Day. Denzel, however, absolutely stole the show.

I’ve never been a fan of his acting or his music, but I’ve always admired him as a guy who always seemed to be doing exactly what he wanted to do, and if you didn’t like it, too damn bad.

If you’ve never heard of Toby Keith, Kris Kristofferson nor Ethan Hawke it tells me that you’re universe must be very, very small. I don’t think it’s something to be proud of, actually.

Toby Keith admits to being a democrat, but supports our military 100 percent. He has done multiple shows for our guys and gals oversea’s.....He was for the war in Afghanistan but luke warm on Iraq and said only time will tell if we did the right thing there. He has never bad mouthed the military or Bush.....

Don't get too excited about this tirade by Kristofferson. While he was a Rhodes Scholar, it looks like he signed up after Oxford around 1960. He did earn a Ranger tab and jump wings and flew helicopters in Germany so he went to rotary wing school sometime also. He was offered assignment to teach English at West Point (he was an English major at Pomona College and studied it more at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar), but he opted to get out of the Army and pursue songwriting instead in 1965.
So I think all his ranting about "killin and cashin paychecks" was what is know as "woofin"...aka, blowing smoke and seeing who blinks.
