Hanson apologizes after getting bad press...the only press they've had in years.




As some of you may remember from this post and this one
, Hanson are assholes. And it's been making the rounds to the point that Vice wrote a piece about it.



-Talks about them ignoring the George Floyd protests until fans called them out

-Black fans come forward and talk about their experiences with feeling ignored

-Their statement:"We are so grateful to our incredible and diverse community of fans for their continued support and powerful connection with our music. We are proud to have people of so many different backgrounds as a part of the community who consider themselves Hanson fans."

-Talks about Zac and his pro-gun, extremely racist secret pinterest board

-His statement: "The leaked Pinterest page provided a distorted view of the issues surrounding race and social justice, which do not reflect my personal beliefs. I apologize for the hurt my actions caused."

-Isaac's statement about his Covid conspiracy theories: "What I shared was driven by an emotional reaction to a recent personal experience, I’m sorry for the pain and worry that my posts caused. I don’t believe there is a group conspiring against Christmas, only that I hope value is placed on both practices of safety and of faith."

Do you think it's utter bullshit they only released statements and apologies after a major publication called them to tell them they were running a story about it, ONTD?
