Alabama Stadium DJ Fired After Mocking Cam Newton

It appears the good folks in Alabama don’t exactly have a sense of humor.

The University of Alabama fired a part-time employee after playing “unauthorized music over the Bryant-Denny Stadium public address system” prior to Friday’s Iron Bowl.

The unauthorized music in question was “Take the Money and Run,” by The Steve Miller Band and “Son of a Preacher Man,” by Dusty Springfield.

Care to take a guess which Auburn player the songs were directed towards?

“The University of Alabama takes great pride in our football team’s long-standing tradition of playing the game with dignity and class, and showing respect for players and coaches of opposing teams,” said Debbie Lane, University of Alabama spokeswoman. “We are disappointed when the actions of any staff member undermine our deeply held values and expectations.”

Below is a clip of the two songs during Auburn’s pregame routine:
