Popular Gay Band The XX To Sue Croatian Hate Group For Using Their Music In Anti-Gay Ad
Leave it to an imbecilic anti-gay hate group to accidentally steal music from one of the world's most popular bands, The XX (with two out of three openly gay members), to use in a homophobic commercial.
In the Name of the Family, a Christian anti-gay hate group in Croatia, is being sued for using the British band's song "Intro" in a new commercial supporting a ban on marriage equality, which is up for referendum in the country on December 1.
According to Gay Star News, a representative for the band sent a letter to members of the Croatian Parliament for advice on moving forward with a lawsuit. "Management are looking to pursue this. Obviously the band are completely at odds with what the movement stands for and want to take appropriate action," reads part of the letter.
The XX is quite popular in Croatia, actually, and performed at the Terraneo Festival in 2012.
