Amanda Knox sang a bit of Come Out Ye Black And Tans on The Ray D'Arcy Show for some reason

What. Is. Going. On?

AMANDA KNOX APPEARED on The Ray D’Arcy Show last night, speaking about being wrongfully convicted of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher.

Her trial caused a huge sensation in 2007, and she spent four years in an Italian prison before being acquitted in 2011.

She told Ray D’Arcy that the experience made her realise that the word was “so unfair”, but that she received support from Irish people who “understood” what she was going through.

“I got letters from lots of Irish people who really understood authority taking advantage of a vulnerable person and spinning it in a bad way,” she said.

They sent me Irish rebel songs and everything… They sent me this CD of the 50 most popular ones. You know, there’s like “Come out ye black and tans, come out and fight me like a man”.

Here’s a clip of the strange moment:

To quote Ray himself: “That’s the oddest thing I’ve ever witnessed.” Irish telly remains surreal.
