A country music band that changed their name from ‘Lady Antebellum’ to ‘Lady A’ in the wake of the George Floyd race riots is now suing the singer who originally used the title, who is black.
The band had announced it’d change its name in the wake of criticism from liberals, who took offense at the word ‘Antebellum-‘ a phrase sometimes used in historical writings to describe the American South before the Civil War. The group instead opted to call itself “Lady A,” a name, as it turns out, was already in use by Seattle-area blues and folk singer Anita White.
The dispute between Lady Antebellum and White has been identified as a striking example of liberal hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement, with the band making a supposedly virtuous stance and sacrifice by changing their name, utterly ignoring that they were usurping on a musical name already used by a black artist.
In a new development highlighting the Nashville act’s bad faith, the band is now suing White, claiming that they’ve always had the name she’s used as a legal trademark and refusing any claim of monetary damages from the name change on the part of White.
“Today we are sad to share that our sincere hope to join together with Anita White in unity and common purpose has ended,” the group said in a statement. “She and her team have demanded a $10 million payment, so reluctantly we have come to the conclusion that we need to ask a court to affirm our right to continue to use the name Lady A, a trademark we have held for many years.”
If Lady Antebellum proves successful in getting the government to recognize their copyright claim to ‘Lady A,’ the artist that originally used the name will have no choice but to surrender it to the more commercially known and influential musical act.
Observers of the situation immediately slammed the country music group for its disrespect for the title’s existing user.
WOW. @ladya FINALLY decided to change their racist name and now they are suing the Black woman @ladiawhite who was already using the name they decided to change their name to. That’s some royally entitled privileged scumbaggery. https://t.co/j2i4GjPFR7 via @pitchfork

SICK: NeverTrump Political Operative Calls to Doxx NUNS For Appearing at Ohio MAGA Rally
Never Trump is doxxing Catholic nuns for supporting Trump.
A Never Trump ex-Republican and liberal campaign consultant called for a doxxing operation to be conducted against Catholic nuns who were seen on camera in attendance at one of President Donald Trump’s ‘MAGA’ rallies in Ohio.
Peter Vroom, is self identifying “ex Republican” campaign consultant. He identifies himself as the CEO of Convergence Event Technology. He took aim at a group of Catholic nuns affiliated with the Children of Mary religious order in a set of Saturday tweets.
Vroom slammed the sisters’ support of the President- who has governed as the most pro-life President in a generation- as “bizarre and disgusting.”
Vroom went on to publish personal information from the sisters’ religious order’s website, tacitly encouraging them to be doxxed.
Vroom had earlier tried to shame a nun for not wearing a face mask, ignoring that she was speaking to a crowd at the event.
Receiving the support of any professed religious (a Catholic term for those such as nuns, friars and monks)- who have sworn vows of poverty, obedience, and chastity- should be considered an honor for any political candidate.
Thankfully, there’s not much that a good little corporate leftist such as Vroom can really do to punish those who have renounced all worldly possessions. He was roundly ratioed in response his Twitter doxxing campaign, with more than seven thousand responses to his initial call to publicize the nuns’ personal information.
