The reason a National Anthem sung by a woman was played over the San Diego Gay Men's Chorus at a Padres game this weekend is because the Gay Men's Chorus weren't actually going to sing.
That's right they prerecorded it and the DJ responsible for playing it played the wrong one by mistake. No homophobia on the part of the Padres or the DJ. He simply played the wrong track.
The Padres fired DJ Artform, the DJ responsible, because everyone assumed it was done on purpose. The real story should be how the San Diego Gay Men's Chorus is a fraud and prerecords the National Anthem.
