American Idol finalist Caleb Kennedy has left the opposition after a video reemerged via online media of Kennedy sitting close to and recording somebody who gives off an impression of being wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood. “American Idol contender Caleb Kennedy will at this point don’t be pushing ahead in the opposition. Sunday’s scene will highlight the Top 4 with one challenger disposal,” the show affirmed to People and Variety.
Kennedy tended to the circumstance on Instagram, writing in a proclamation, “There was a video that surfaced on the web and it showed activities that were not intended to be taken around there.” He proceeded, “I was more youthful and didn’t consider the activities, yet that is not a pardon. I wanna say sorry to every one of my fans and every individual who I have let down.”
Kennedy’s mom, Anita Guy, told the Spartanburg Herald-Journal that the clasp was taken outside any connection to the issue at hand, and asserted that Kennedy and his companion were copying characters from the blood and gore film The Strangers: Prey at Night. “It had nothing to do with the Ku Klux Klan, however I realize that is what it looks like.
Caleb doesn’t have a bigoted bone in his body,” Guy said. Neither of the challengers wiped out a week ago, Arthur Gunn and Hunter Metts will be getting back to American Idol to have Kennedy’s spot. This present Sunday’s scene will rather highlight the excess four semifinalists, Chayce Beckham, Casey Bishop, Grace Kinstler, and Willie Spence.
