Troy Aikman is speaking out about his “hot mic” comments about a military flyover at an NFL game over the weekend.
Aikman and his broadcasting partner Joe Buck were heard being extremely critical of the flyover before the Bucs vs. Packers game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
“That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover,” Aikman said.
“That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!” Buck added.
Aikman followed up — “That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner.”
Aikman and Buck took some heat on social media, so Troy decided to quiet it down by releasing a statement on Twitter.
“I love a flyover but It was odd to see one over a mostly empty stadium,” Aikman said.
“But I am an unwavering patriot that loves this country, has always respected our flag, supported the men and women in the armed forces as well as those in uniform who serve & protect and for anyone to suggest otherwise doesn’t know me, my beliefs or what I have stood for my entire life.”
