So....Lady Antebellum, dropped the name Antebellum because of ...racism or whatever, and changed it to Lady A in early June. However, there was already a black woman going by the name of Lady A.

So they changed their name to prevent accusations of racism....and then they sue a black woman to take control of her own name?

LOL I swear we live in clownworld.

This is the greatest thing I've heard in a long time.

Ya know, if they weren't dangerous I'd love to keep SJWs around purely for the entertainment factor.

I did.

They tried strong-arming this woman and failed.

There's a difference between unofficial nicknames and your official name.

Did you really read it?

The lady attempted an opportunistic shakedown for $10mil and failed. The band are asserting the rights to a trademark they have owned for more than a decade.
