OutKast Performance Puts CBS In More Hot Water

CNN (which hasn’t removed pop-ups) is reporting that CBS, fresh off its apology for the Super Bowl fiasco at halftime, has released another mea culpa.

This time, the net is trying to relieve some tension caused after Andre 3000’s Native American-themed performance at the Grammys last week was seen as having “the most disgusting set of racial stereotypes aimed at American Indians that I have ever seen on TV”, or so said Sean Freitas, board member of the Native American Cultural Center in the Reuters/CNN piece.

I didn’t hear about anything offensive happening yesterday on CBS, but it’s still early on Monday afternoon so far – but I’ll keep my eyes peeled.
