Rocker Chris Daughtry has filmed a heartfelt apology for walking off stage Friday from “FOX & Friends,” saying he was “off the clock” and apparently refusing to play a patriotic sing-along for the crowd in honor of D-Day.
In the video, Daughtry says he was unprepared and caught by surprise by the request and panicked. “It was absolutely disrespectful,” he says, adding, “the worst part of all, I didn’t honor our troops, I didn’t honor our vets who so deserve it.”
PLEASE WATCH. There aren't enough characters on twitter to express all I need to say. http://t.co/0rklUhhEsn
