Head of Coachella’s Parent Company Is a Real Asshole

Alex Galbraith, writing for Uproxx, details how Coachella’s parent company, AEG, is helmed by the extreme right-winger Philip Anschutz:

“Phil Anschutz’s extensive influence in Colorado politics has been known for years, but the degree of his support for anti-LGBTQ groups that fund extremist hate groups like Gordon Kligenschmitt’s ‘Pray in Jesus Name’ is shocking,” said ProgressNow Colorado executive director Ian Silverii in a press release. “At a time in American history when discrimination and violence against LGBTQ citizens is on the rise, support for pro-discrimination groups puts Anschutz on the wrong side of Colorado, and on the wrong side of history.”

Just something to think about before spending your money.
