You is perhaps a sucker if… you imagine all these viral political memes that supposedly quote Jeff Foxworthy are true.
The comedian says none of them are his as a result of he doesn’t do politics.
“It will have my name and my face, and go: Here’s what Jeff said about this. And I go, no, Jeff did not say that,” Foxworthy told the New York Daily News.
Foxworthy rose to fame within the 1990s with redneck jokes and his best-selling album “You Might Be A Redneck If…” But lately, memes have sprung up that includes a play on his well-known flip of phrase, typically starting with “You might be a liberal” or “You might be a Democrat.”
The memes often characteristic photographs of Foxworthy together with a quote he by no means made. The comedian and host of “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” mentioned he shuns mixing politics with jokes.
“No matter which side you’re on, half of the crowd is going to hate you,” he mentioned. “That’s not my job.”
While Foxworthy has averted politics in his jokes, he hasn’t averted taking sides: In 2012, he endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
