Michelle Shocked walks back her anti-gay slurs

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

After watching cancellation notices pour in, the East Texas singer who stunned the crowd at Yoshi’s in San Francisco Sunday night with an anti-gay rant is attempting to set the record straight. She says she didn’t express herself clearly and it was all a misunderstanding; that she wasn’t talking about how she feels about gays, but the way gay bashers feel. No mention of the tooth fairy in her press release emailed to media outlets. The Chronicle’s Leah Garchik has an early post devoted to her mea culpa. So does CNN.
