After a slew of articles parroting The Washington Post’s attacks against Philip Anschutz, Owner of AEG Live which owns Coachella, Anschultz is speaking out. We brought you this story earlier in the week, explaining the fact that it was really nothing more than a political hit job and had little basis in fact. Echoing this sentiment Anschutz responded that the report from The Washington Post was nothing more than “fake news” and “garbage”. He remarked that his organization employs people from diverse backgrounds and also supports causes from all ends of the spectrum.
“Recent claims published in the media that I am anti-LGBTQ are nothing more than fake news – it is all garbage,”
The Coachella owner claimed to support organizations which support LGBT causes and would never donate to an organization which was working against those groups. He added that if any such developments came to his attention concerning any group he donated to, such donations were ceased. The executive director for Freedom for All Americans expressed optimism at Anschutz’ response.
