Daniel Whitney, known for his blue collar “Larry the Cable Guy” personality, broke character to blast the media’s portrayal of rednecks as racist.

In a recent interview with “The Gavin McInnes Show,” Whitney accused the media of being perpetually frustrated when people deemed as rednecks are not racist or do not fall into traps set up to bait them as racist or sexist or anti-Muslim.

“They’ve drawn up this picture of how they want us to be,” Whitney, who rarely breaks character, said. “And when we’re not how they want us to be, they go insane. They cannot handle it.”

“When you watch all these shootings that happen, they’ll even come out and say, ‘Well, it was a white guy that was seen leaving the area with a —’ and when it’s not, you’re right, they are so flabbergasted, and it’s because what they think we are, we aren’t,” Whitney continued. “And it frustrates them to no end, and that’s why they get irritated. That’s why they hate us. They hate what we stand for, they hate our values, they hate us so bad. They want it to be true, and it’s not true.”
