Can you be racist to white people? Bo Bice thinks so.

Bo Bice first made headlines when he came second to Carrie Underwood in 2005s American

Idol.

But now hes making headlines for claiming reverse racism.

He was at an airport Popeyes when a group of African American employees made fun of

his name, referring to him asBow-Bow,” “Boo-Boo,” andBo-Bo.”

The employees accidentally rang his order in twice. So when they called for him a second

a time, one of the workers allegedly said, “Hes already got histhat white boy

there.”

Bice claims that corporate didnt respond to him so he posted about it on Facebook.

He told Fox News, “If the tables had been turned and I used something as insensitive

like thatI would be boycotted, there would be people not buying my albums, there would

be people coming and picketing my shows and everything else.”
