Who is Caleb Kennedy?
Caleb Kennedy is a country singer who started his journey at sixteen on ‘American idol 2020’. In a short period, he gained popularity across the nation and secured the top five participants.
But Kennedy was eliminated from the show after posting a picture on Snapchat with an abusive caption supporting racism that says, “Now that I’m home, I try to be me, but I’m also scared of someone videoing me when I go to the Academy or Walmart. So you have to worry about things like that now.” Caleb Kennedy was supposed to be sitting beside someone wearing Ku Klux Klan Hood in the Snapchat post.
