Rolling Stone magazine co-founder Jann Wenner faced backlash and was removed from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame foundation's board after making controversial comments in an interview with the New York Times.
In the interview, Wenner spoke about his decision to include only white male artists in his new book, 'The Masters,' and stated that women and Black artists were not "articulate enough on an intellectual level" to be included. These comments have been deemed both sexist and racist, with many pointing out the irony that Tina Turner, a black woman, was featured on the second-ever cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
During his 'Donkey of the Day' segment on 'The Breakfast Club,' Charlamagne Tha God criticized Wenner for his prejudiced views and challenged him to articulate why he believes women and black people don't deserve to be included in his book. He concludes that there is no valid intellectual reason for excluding these artists; instead, it is rooted in racism and sexism. Watch above.
