Absolutely the most ridiculous thing to make this about anti gay, anti women or racism. PBS used to be a great source of shows now it has become a farce and all they want to do is fan the fires of hatred over nothing. This event was simply about Rock and Roll vs Disco. Making it anything more is pathetic.
