Bernie Sanders' campaign has touted a downtown Los Angeles event on March 1 headlined by hip hop group Public Enemy. But the group's co-creator, Flavor Flav, isn't pleased https://t.co/a6OfjrWLWU— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) February 29, 2020
Bernie’s campaign is promoting an event with a description that says “Join Bernie Sanders, Sarah Silverman, and Dick Van Dyke, with a special performance by Public Enemy Radio."
While Public Enemy’s other founder Chuck D will be performing, Flavor Flav is accusing Bernie of promoting a "false narrative to the American people" that he has the band’s endorsement.
"If Bernie allows this deceptive marketing to continue without clearly correcting the messaging to reflect the true nature of this endorsement which should accurately read: 'Chuck D of Public Enemy' — Senator Sanders will himself have played a part in whitewashing a key chapter in American History. Bernie, his name is Flavor Flav and he does NOT approve your message!"
