Outkast Backlash 

We knew this was coming. CBS had to apologize AGAIN, but this time it was for Outkast's performance of Hey Ya! at the Grammys. The performance included a neon green tee-pee, hot girls with fringed costumes and feathers in their hair, and a marching band wearing warpaint. The Native American Cultural Center was outraged by the performance and subsequently organized a boycott of CBS, Arista Records, and the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.

It gets better: CBS apologized by saying the network was "very sorry if anyone was offended."
Apparently the NACC was not satisfied with this and has thus published a 6-point apology guide for CBS.

So, let me get this straight: CBS is against boobies but for the further degradation of an already marginalized group. Kudos, CBS! Way to prioritize!
