When hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood tackled the disastrous roll out of ObamaCare during the ceremony, they did so with a healthy dose of humor. “I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done,” Underwood said, prompting the duo to break into a parody of the George Strait classic song “Amarillo by Morning.” The resulting spoof, “ObamaCare by Morning,” was received with the vocal support of the audience. In the social media sphere, however, supporters of the widely unpopular law saw racism in the exchange. Somehow suggesting that the only reason Americans would be against socialized healthcare has something to do with the race of the man responsible for forcing upon them, rude and often profane Twitter posts blasted the hosts and members of the audience.
