@CHRIS_Daughtry Fans said U should have stayed & sung a patriotic song for D-Day. Those Vets died for all of us. U R free 'cause of them.— Taylor (@Taylormade0214) June 7, 2014
If Daughtry actually did refuse to sing another song in honor of D Day then he will win the prick of the month award

@CHRIS_Daughtry couldn't bother to sing a patriotic song on D-Day. Hey, a$$hole. The D in D-Day doesn't stand for douche bag.

@CHRIS_Daughtry Real classy walking off stage this morning. And on D-Day. "I'm off the clock" when asked to sing one more song. Asshole
