'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.

I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa Loompa doompadee dee
If you are wise you will listen to me
Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a Siamese cat?
Blaming the kids is a lion of shame
You know exactly who's to blame:
The mother and the father!
Oompa Loompa doompadee dah
If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa doompadee do

The letter makes it pretty clear that he's mentally disable, which explains why it was so difficult for him to perform the song correctly. Cut the little guy some slack, at least he didn't lip-sync or auto-tune.

people hire you to exploit you because of your appearance ... " embarrassed and abused " is basically just another day at the office for you ..

This "working tirelessly to learn" is apparently not working for many. Prerequisite for hiring- Knowing the words to the Star Spangled Banner from the get go. What a concept...

Oh come on, you hire these "little people" and exploit them and you're lecturing the Dodgers on behavior?? Give me a break. He screwed up and that's what happens when you screw up on a grand scale. Grow up!!

Poor little guy, shame on the dodgers! Way to make fun of a mildly retarded leprechaun. Little guy should lawyer up!

He's an Irish leprechaun for crap's sakes. Of course he doesn't know "The Star Spangled Banner". I doubt there's a leprechaun on this planet that knows the lyrics. Give him a break. Next time, you guys'll be freaking out because Bigfoot or Nessie effed up the lyrics at the big game. It's no wonder these wonderful creatures stay hidden most of the time; you guys are terrible!

I was at the game, and the little guy was doing pretty well until he lost his place. Then it got real. The Dodger players started heckling him. The little leprechaun started crying. I felt terrible for him. Then his handler gave him a tiny juice box with a tiny straw, and he seemed to feel better.

I think we found a replacement short-stop for the dodgers! Atleast the dodgers can once again be entertaining.
