Chris Daughtry apologizes for 'Fox and Friends' D-Day snub

Chris Daughtry is speaking out and apologizing after something that went down on "Fox and Friends" this week. This singer is a past contestant on "American Idol" and has a really big fan base, but he really upset some people this week with a D-Day snub that the singer didn't even mean to do. On Sunday, Billboard shared how Chris messed up on the show but really didn't mean to at all. He was put on the spot and didn't know what to do.

He was on the show and performed for the All-American Summer Concert Series. This was on D-Day and they asked him to sing a patriotic song next. He felt really put on the spot and Daughtry didn't know what to do. He couldn't come up with a song on the spot and ended up bailing on it. Chris said, "I'm off the clock. I'm going to watch 'y'all." After that he said, "This is where I'll bail." This did not go over well with fans.

Chris felt bad and went to the Daughtry YouTube page to talk about it. Chris said that he felt thrown off and panicked. He said in the moment he tried to make light of the situation and of course it didn't go over well. It did not come off the way that he meant it at all. Twitter went crazy saying soldiers never went off the clock and Chris realizes that it was a poor choice of words.

Daughtry went on to say that he realizes he didn't honor our troops and he is upset about that obviously. Fans should give Chris a break considering he didn't mean to upset anyone but things just went bad when he got put into an uncomfortable situation. He was embarrassed and ashamed. He wants everyone to know that they do support the troops and will continue to do so from now on out. He really regrets this moment.
