Former fans of ‘American Idol’ season two runner-up Clay Aiken have issued a press release in response to ‘Idol’ judge Simon Cowell’s comments on ‘Larry King Live’ that the fans who filed a complaint against Aiken to the FTC are “crazy.” The nine fans stated: “We are grateful that the merits of our complaint will be heard by the FTC instead of a pretend judge from a televised talent show. We have been dismayed to see our complaint characterized in the media as homophobic. That is not our intention and while central to our complaint it is regrettable that Mr. Aiken’s sexuality has come under scrutiny. Our complaint is not about defaming Mr. Aiken or his sexual preferences. It is directed toward the deceptive practices of the record companies.” Read more.
