The official national anthem singer for the Baltimore Ravens has resigned.

Joey Odoms made the announcement Tuesday. He stated due to the tone and actions of a number of NFL fans in the midst of our country's cultural crisis he feels he does not belong there.

Odoms is a member of the American armed forces which in some part led to him landing the job as the anthem singer while he was deployed in Afghanistan in 2014. The Baltimore native told head Ravens coach John Harbaugh that it would be his dream to sing for them.
