Van Morrison was called a "little prickly leprechaun" on one of America's top-rated shows this week.
Comedian/actor Tony Powell told "Imus in the Morning" that Morrison had kicked him, and several others, out of the green room on Monday morning while they were all waiting to go on air with host Don Imus.
“And as we're walking out, I thought he had Tourettes,” Powell said. “I didn't know what was going on.
Imus - who was bounced from MSNBC in 2007 after referring to Rutgers women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos"- said he hoped that Powell wasn't trying to turn the Morrison episode into a racial incident.
