American Idol accused of discrimination

Some people will do anything to cause a scandal – a young woman by the name of Ashley Kauffman, who attended the American Idol show last week, is claiming that Idol producers sent her to the back of the studio, out of the range of the cameras, because they said she was too fat to sit up front where she could be seen.

A representative for American Idol says that this is simply not true – according to them, Kauffman and two of her friends sat in the floor section, in direct line of the cameras, and that they were nowhere near the back.  Certainly Kauffman most realize that Idol has the video evidence to back their story up, so there’s no telling where she thinks she’s going with this tale of fabricated discrimination.
