Shut Up, Joe Buck! Don't Harass Zooey Deschanel!

Zooey sang the National Anthem before game 4 of the World Series, but left after six innings — and the FOX announcer called her out on TV for skipping the rest of the game!

Joe Buck, arguably one of the worst sports announcers of all time, dissed Zooey Deschanel because she didn’t stay for the entire Rangers-Cardinals match-up!

“A lot of times, the stars have their moment on TV and then they just bolt,” Joe Schmuck … err Buck … said when the cameras panned to the absent star.

Zooey — who rocked her rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” —  tweeted that she actually had to get back to work and that’s why she didn’t stay to see the finish.

“Would have loved to have watched the whole game but I had to catch a plane so I can go to work tomorrow. That’s all guys. I’m not a jerk.,” she wrote on Oct. 24.

Joe, stick with what you know, which is how to be the most boring, biased and ill-informed sports announcer in the business, otherwise you sound like the jerk.

P.S. The Rangers won 4 to 0, in case you were wondering, tying the Series at two games a piece.
