CNN Apologizes For Posting Hatebreed as ‘White Power’ Group

metalunderground.com

Seems like certain news outlets need to check their facts before they post on their website. Looks like along with bands such as Angry Aryans, Force Fed Hate, (and more I refuse to post because of their names…), Hatebreed was tagged along in a list of ‘White Power’ bands! The band and the fans are not to happy about the news.

Hatebreed quickly reacted to CNN’s posting by tweeting…

After fans demanded that they correct the error, CNN then posted…

“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.”

This article was inspired by a recent massacre that occurred at a Sikh Temple in Wisconsin. It was revealed that a white supremacist was responsible for the massacre and that he played in two ‘White Power’ bands. Thus, the article was written where the writer listed group that had names that “defiantly express feelings of hate or violence.”

It is sick and wrong we still have problems like this today….but leave the good metal out of it!
