American Idol alleged racism
“American Idol“ is being sued by nine former contestants for alleged racism, reported by TMZ. The past performers from various seasons alleged they were given the boot as part of a racist plot to boost ratings for the Fox network.

The singers hired New York attorney James H. Freeman who has reportedly submitted a letter to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), asking permission to sue “Idol” and Fox on behalf of his clients.  The nine performers who are filing the suit are Corey Clark (Season 2), Jaered Andrews (Season 2), Donnie Williams (Season 3), Terrell Brittenum (Season 5), Derrell Brittenum (Season 5), Thomas Daniels (Season 6), Akron Watson (Season 6), Ju’Not Joyner (Season 8), and Chris Golightly (Season 9).
