Before Darius Rucker took the stage, co-host Paisley took a jab at the CMAs audience with a joke about ABC’s new comedy “Black-ish,” which usually airs Wednesday nights.
If you were looking for “Black-ish” tonight, yeah, this ain’t it. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy White-ish.
Although many laughed off the remark on Twitter, others weren’t too happy:
@ABCNetwork how racist can you all be right now on the CMAs,discussing President Obama and his democratic loss & the hit tv show Blackish

Brad Paisley your joke was not racist people are just sensitive. Blackish is a great show and it was a tasteful joke. #GetOverIt

Jesus, so Brad Paisley's joke was seen as racist? But BET and a show called BLACKISH are not? LOL Welcome to Double Standard Butthurt, USA!
