16-Year-Old ‘American Idol’ Singer Caleb Kennedy Drops Out Over KKK Controversy

Caleb Kennedy was one of the top contestants on this season of American Idol, but now he’s out after a controversial video surfaced on social media that shows him beside someone wearing what looks to be a white Ku Klux Klan hood.
