"Accidental racist" Brad Paisley, one-half of the Country Music Award's hosting duo on ABC last night, tried to make a joke about Black-ish, the show that would have normally aired during the time slot. Shockingly, it didn't land!
"If any of you tuned in to ABC tonight expecting to see the new show Black-ish—yeah, this ain't it. In the mean time, I hope you're all enjoying...white-ish." Haha? Kacey Musgraves and that one woman from Nashville were not laughing.
As they are wont to do, people sounded off on Twitter about Paisley's joke. Some people were outraged:
I didn't like him before, but now I can't stand him!

Others didn't see what the big deal was:
Brad Paisley's joke wasn't racist, but the country music fans claiming that "Blackish" is the real problem here are.
