Arcade Fire's Win Butler cut off by ESPN for telling US to learn from Canada [VIDEO]
Following an NBA all-star game that took place at the Ricoh Coliseum in Toronto between the U.S. and Canada, Team Canada's MVP, ​Arcade Fire singer Win Butler, was invited to talk to ESPN reporter Sage Steele.

Everything was cool until the world realized she simply could not handle Butler's pro-Canada commentary like an adult. "It's an election year in the U.S.," Butler began. "The U.S. has a lot they can learn from Canada, health care, taking care of people."

Immediatly, Steele pulled the microphone away, informing Butler that "we're talking about celebrity stuff, not politics." No one was impressed was the live on-air shut down.
 
Better luck next time, Steele.
