Canada to Billy Bob: No Thank You

4/11/2009 2:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy Bob ThortonBilly Bob Thornton should have known better -- being impolite doesn't fly for Canadians.

The actor "musician" and his band, The Boxmasters, have canceled their last two Canadian tour dates with Willie Nelson following Billy Bob's now-infamous radio rant of d-bag awesomeness, according to an announcement on Willie's website.

But Billy Bob didn't just end his hissy fit in the studio. Apparently he went on stage later that night, in front of an all-Canadian audience, and called his interviewer an "asshole"... for, you know, asking Billy Bob questions.

The canceled shows might stem from the fact that Billy Bob said Canadian audiences were boring ... or because actors are usually terrible at playing music.

He's just lucky he was in Canada and not some scarier, less-Canadian country.

I'd hate to see this loser on a lie detector test. "Is your name Billy Bob Thornton"? "Umm... I don't know what you mean".

Luckily, they will all recover from that nasty "Canadian Flu" within three days. They are sure of it.

From the Boxmaster's website:

Unfortunately, The Boxmasters had to cancel the remainder of the Canadian dates with Willie Nelson and Ray Price, including Montreal and London, due to one band member and several of the crew having the flu. They will rejoin the tour on April 14th in Stamford, CT after they've had time to recover. We wish them a safe and speedy recovery.

We wish them a safe and speedy recovery?
The "royal" we?

Here's to hoping that the people in his upcoming Stamford CT show also boo him offstage. The guy is a tool. I'm glad to see the concert goers in Canada didn't tolerate his behavior. If the band was smart - they'd kick BB out - they got what they needed from him - publicity. I can't imagine they were in awe of his spectacular drumming ability.

Man.... He REALLY douched out, didn't he??!! I love how he didn't want the interviewer to mention any of his movie career but when it happened he acted like the typical spoiled movie prima-donna! It's kind of funny. BTW, did he think he was making the interviewer look stupid with those, "I don't get it, etc..."? That pseudo arrogant move just made him look like he's mentally impaired. Oh, and for god's sake.... lose that wig, thing.
