Caleb Kennedy officially no longer in the competition (will not be replaced) in American Idol Posted May 13 7 hours ago, redwood79 said: This.^ No one is ruining his career. No one is saying he is inherently a bad person and can't change. But giving letting him go scot free and potentially actually win the competition would be so incredibly disrespectful to the centuries of oppression people of color faced in America to a terrorist organization. Also Franzel is very on brand for you. Just saying. He was never going to win anyway and I'm pretty sure everybody knows that. That wouldn't be allowing him to "get away" with anything, everybody makes mistakes and does silly things when they're young that really don't need to be brought to people's attention, most of all when you're in the spotlight on a tv show. You're saying that his career won't be ruined, but you can damn well bet it'll hold him back. And lmao what on earth does Nicole have to do with any of this?
