'National Anthem' Leprechaun Fires Back at Dodgers

3/18/2011 6:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The leprechaun who screwed up the National Anthem at yesterday's Los Angeles Dodgers game says the team "embarrassed and abused" him after making what he calls a tiny mistake.

TMZ obtained a letter from Jeff Beacher -- owner of the company that dispatches armies of little people to parties.  Jeff claims Donald Davis ... aka the leprechaun ... worked tirelessly to learn the "Star Spangled Banner" before yesterday's Spring Training game -- but "under the pressure of the moment, forgot some of the song's lyrics."

Donald claims after he finished singing the Dodgers ripped him a wee one by accusing him of intentionally messing up the song as a prank.

Donald's demanding a formal apology from the blue crew for "cruel and insensitive treatment."

Calls to the Dodgers were not returned.

He choked and didn't have a back up plan (access to the lyrics). Epic FAIL. Take it and learn from it. If he had "tirelessly" worked, he wouldn't have screwed up.

Dodgers should sue him.

So the little person that screwed up our National song, "The Star Spangled Banner," which EVERY person should know and HE wants an apology. He SCREWED UP. He is WAY OUT OF LINE. So Donald Davis, the "actor" "forgot some of the words under the PRESSURE OF THE MOMENT?????" The little person, Donald David, has absolutely, positively NO BUSINESS trying to be in show business if he can't even remember the words to the song that is the very soul of the USA "under pressure." This really, really sickens me. If you can't take the heat, get out the kitchen. He has no business in the kitchen anyway, if he can't take that tiny bit of pressure.

He 'worked tirelessly to learn it'. WTF???? Shouldn't the wee one already know it? He's not so young that he wasn't expected to learn and sing it in school. He's smart enough to formally demand a written apology, then he's intelligent enough to already know it. He screwed up, his loss. No money and no respect for a wee one with a little attitude.

He "worked tirelessly to learn" the national anthem? What is it with "celebrities" and the national anthem? Children can sing it without a problem.
