OTTAWA - She’s being assailed from one end of Ottawa to the other, over social media, in the papers and being called everything from manipulative to hockey’s Yoko Ono.
Now Carrie Underwood won’t be heard on one of the city’s most popular radio stations.
The New 105.3 KISS FM is vowing that someone is going to pay for the “betrayal to our community” and that someone is Underwood.
“We know Mike Fisher is not to blame for this trade but feel he was lured away from Ottawa by a country-music superstar. Sure, she’s pretty. Yes, she can sing. But can she play hockey? Can she put one on the top shelf with a slap shot? No!” said the station.
True to its word, not one Underwood single was listed in its playlist and program director Gayle Zarbatany said the ban is in effect forever.
“This is a wretching announcement and the city is completely upset,” she railed.
“He’s been here for 10 years, he’s the second most popular player and it’s awful.”
Still, Zarbatany said it was only a matter of time.
“He’s married to her. Where is he going to live? She’s in Nashville and he’s here.”
Responding to the Yoko tweets, she said they sadly seem to suit Underwood.
“That’s harsh, but it is what it is.”
