Jackson Jive | Harry Connick Jr.What where these people thinking? Did they NOT think this would cause an uproar? I don’t only think the performers are crazy I also think the TV producers that actually let this on the air need to get a swift kick.

Caught up in the middle of this is Harry Connick, Jr. who was a judge on the Australian talent show, Hey, Hey It’s Saturday.

Of course, now everyone is apologizing and backtracking and trying to smooth the situation over. Too late – the damage is done, and it just goes to show the insensitive nature of some whackos out there.

Below is the story run on CNN that shows some additional commentary by Harry Connick, Jr.

How do you feel about this? What about Connick’s reaction and statements?
