16-Year-Old Singer Leaves ‘Idol’ Over KKK Video Controversy

Published on May 14, 2021 by

Caleb Kennedy was one of the top contestants on this season of American Idol, but now he’s out after a controversial video surfaced on social media that shows him beside someone wearing what looks to be a white Ku Klux Klan hood. His mom reportedly said the video was taken when Caleb was 12 years old after he watched the movie “The Strangers: Prey At Night,” and has nothing to do with the KKK. The 16-year-old got to the final five of the competition and was favored to win the whole thing, until now.
