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.

first of all he appeared on the CBC radio's "Q." and the producers had been told ahead of time not to talk about his film career. They disrespect him from the start by not following the rules. They kept asking him about his film career. He was there to to talk about his music. They are aholes for that.

NOw make sure that Canadian who lives in the States but hates and writes of his hatred for the States, Neil Young, doesnt invite him to Farm Aid given Willie Nelson is he co sponsor of that Event. It would be just like Young to do something like that...the guy ought to take a break on preaching about Obama, and Electric Cars and Shut UP and Sing.

Keep Billy Bob out of Farm Aid Neil...and if you hate America so much why do you live here? I heard theres plenty of open space up in Manitoba.

Just to let people know, for the most part Canadians are nice people...we generally get along with everyone, that's why we are liked around the world.We DO tend to get a bit pissed when a No Good Hillbilly 4th rate singer insults us in our own country! Hopefully Canada Customs searched BBT for drugs because he was obviously doing some during the interview...BEND OVER AND SAY EH BILLY!!!!!

The reason Canadians were so upset and boooo' d BBT is because he called Canadians "mashed potatoes without the gravy"...implying we are dry, THEN the news goes far and wide and BBT tried back peddling saying he was calling the interviewer mashed potatoes NOT CANADIANS. WE may be a NICE COUNTRY....but we know what S..T smells like and we don't have to stand in it to know that.BBT is now paying the price of his words.......I this "mashed potatoe " feels vindicated!

Rap sucks    

Well that's what canada is all aboot no one can take actors who've become "musicians" seriously. Billy bob sucks anyway but at least he's doing hollywood a favor by quitting acting and taking off THE CURSE he brought to many actors. Wonder why he became like joaquin phoenix, a new thing going on?

That's why he did so well in Sling Blade. He wasn't acting.
