'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 don't know who's more handicapped, the dodgers or their coaching staff? the drunk Leprechaun singing the National Anthem was ****ing brilliant though, best part of the game by far.

"And the rockets red glare, the bombs igniting my orange hair, gave proof through the night, that I'm lacking in height. Oh, say does that star-spangled Oompa Loompa yet ball,
O'er the land of the WEE and the home of the small ?

OK I was there at the game, and he was tore up b4 the anthem....it was worse than a lil flub like forgeting a line or two. He bombed like hiroshima so the crowd helped with the last half. Most people were laughing at him. It was St Pattys and he's a lep, hes supposed to be hammered and making people laugh. Get over it. I was hoping for some mig tossing afterwards....maybe next year!

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

Agreed. I learned this song in elementary school. Even if you don't remember it from childhood, how hard is it to memorize? The song is like one minute long!

And, secondly, every person of every country should know their freaking anthem..no excuse!!!

Sounds like that Donald guy has a "Short" fuse and gets angry fast. I'm sure the Dodgers paid him a "Small" fortune to sing. Perhaps he should spend a "Little" time learning the National Anthem.

Sounds to me like it was planned...who cares it was St Patricks Day and he was probably trashed....wish I was there to see it. Does anyone know if this is on You Tube??? Next time maybe they can get Matt or Amy Roloff to do it!

WHY is it people have this ignorant propensity to hire people to sing the freakin national anthem who have to learn it ten minutes before the performance?

If you don't know the lyrics to this don't dare call yourself a patriot and in my world an American for that matter. And anyone who hires people, how about hearing them first? MORONS.

Today's American teens and many adults know the lyrics to every snoop dogg and company hate rant out there yet not the freaking anthem> get the hell outta here if that's YOU. I spit on your ILK.
