Jessica Simpson Denies Snubbing the Troops on Her Christmas TV Special


Jessica Simpson


Following rumor that Jessica Simpson banned a group of veterans from singing with her, a spokesperson for the singer says the duet performance did not happen 'due to time.'

Jessica Simpson is gearing up to release a new Christmas album and she has taped a TV special on PBS in support of the holiday set. The promotional effort, unfortunately, has been marred by rumor that she snubbed a singing group of combat veterans named 4Troops due to their scruffy clothes.

Report suggested it was Jessica's dad, Joe Simpson, who banned the veterans from performing with her. Joe reportedly demanded them to change their clothes to tuxedos to suit the glamorous event. "Joe should be ashamed of himself," a spokesperson for the group said. "I am so disappointed and angry, I threw up when I got back to my room."

A source told New York Post's Page Six, "They waited for six hours until midnight only to be told their number with Jessica had been cut from the show. The irony was Jessica was on stage saying how much she supports and admires the troops, and the veterans were stuck in a room in the basement. Instead of enduring more humiliation, the veterans left."

Contrary to the report, a representative for Jessica insists the singer is innocent. "The song was cut due to time. Jessica wasn't even aware. She is wholeheartedly devoted to the troops. She just returned from the Persian Gulf where she performed for and met with service men and women stationed at several different locations. The military was the source of inspiration for her entire Christmas album, so much so that she recorded a duet for the album with a USS Harry Truman sailor," the rep explained.

    If Jessica and her dad can snub the troops then all of America should snub them.

    If the vets were not appropriately dressed then fine. Vets don't get a free pass and shouldn't.

    What a floozy. Even if she supposedly didn't know about it, her Dad probably denied the vet quartet because he knows what a snooty snob his cash-cow harlot of a daughter is.

    I at first actually liked her for the reason that I heard she would do things to support the troops since I never cared for her music this changes my thoughts about what I think of her now to bad for Jessica she never really was that popular to begin with this is just going to hurt her career even more..I hope they realize that..

    My husband met her when she visited Iraq. The whole time she complained at Nick that she was HOT. She didn't/doesn't care about our troops

    In most recent wars after WWII, Vets have fought only for corporate interest, not for any other cause. They still support Iraq war that was based on lies and for corp interests.

    When I was in Viet-Nam, I fought for myself and for the friends I was over there with. I didn't fight for her or anybody else. They're not worth fighting for, but they don't know that yet.

    She needs to start running her own career. She allows her dad to take care of everything then she does not know what is going on. Or is that what she wants us to think?

    Hey Redbone, to say such a thing means in my military eyes you shouldn't have the right or privilege to live in this country. Vets gave that right to your sorry a**

    Stop with Troops B.S.! The civil war was the last time an American soldier died for his country. Every war since was fought for the financial interests of the ruling class. Wake up sheep.

    Bullshit; It's her show, if she cared, she should've insisted, and made the Vets, Prioity! She has the power, so she's full of it! Should've Never been cut, if she really cared!

    They are all to blame. It is her show even if it is not very good and she can have a dress standard for performers. As veterns they should be used to uniform standards and present a proper appearance. As for her saying it was time restricted, Then cut out someone else and not the veterns you are suppose to be supporting. Her dad just needs to go away!

    I find this very wrong. I am a disabled veteran of the Vietname War and I know how it feels to be spit on and egged. I thought this society got better.

    If the cut was time related, then they should have MADE TIME FOR OUR TROOPS to perform. If it was her dad, Joe, She should have made the necessary allowances to have these guys perform. Shame on you Jessica!!
