CNN Refers To Hatebreed As "White Power" Band, Issues Retraction
Band Photo: Hatebreed (?)
It was recently revealed that the alleged Wisconsin shooter, who reportedly wounded and killed several people at a Sikh temple, was a member of white supremacist band End Apathy. Since then CNN has posted an opinion piece about white power bands written by Lonnie Nasatir, who is the director of the Anti-Defamation League's Upper Midwest Region.
In the article Hatebreed was included in a list of white power bands, which is a charge the group denies. CNN apparently realized the error or was contacted by people upset about the claim, as Hatebreed's name has now been removed from the list and the bottom of the article includes the following update:
A previous version of this commentary incorrectly included the band Hatebreed in a list of white power bands. Hatebreed is a self-described "hardcore metal" band. CNN regrets the error.
The retraction came after Hatebreed posted the following message on Twitter:
"Again @CNN loses all respect. First they ignore the #FREERANDYBLYTHE story now they slander us. We demand a retraction & an apology. #hacks"
