"Good job at being racist and homophobic, American Idol." Those aren't my words, but they're the sentiments of plenty of fans after Sunday night's Disney-themed episode.

After last night's votes were tallied, four of the show's minority contestants found themselves in elimination contention. Ada Vox, a drag queen, Jurnee, an openly gay and black contestant, Michelle Sussett, an immigrant from Venezuela, and Dennis Lorenzo, an African-American male, received the least votes after their performances. Jurnee was the only one to escape elimination.

These four contestants were in the bottom because this is "Trump's America," according to some upset viewers.

Well heck yeah. Of course PDJT is responsible for the outcome of AI. Looks like these petulant little twerps have bought the lie lock, stock and barrel. Hey, but at least "Jurnee" made it through. Whoever that is. Seriously deluded twitter twerps.

No one should win. They should all be given participation awards.

Ada Vox, a drag queen, Jurnee, an openly gay

Who the heck would watch that?

What you don't understand is that, for some people, unless openly gay black contestant ALWAYS win, the show and all of its viewers MUST be racist. Talent and ability in any area of endeavor is a secondary consideration for SJWs.

MUST divide the people in order to take over. (lather, rinse, repeat)

The freak drag queen, only made it this far BECAUSE it’s a drag queen. That white kid from Georgia is pretty good.

I wonder if I’m racist? I’ve probably watched a total of one hour of this show. Honestly didn’t even know it was still on the air, nor do I know what Jurnee is.

Sounds like a guy who can’t read a map.

The Ugly Left just cannot keep to their own business. You can thank the Obama agenda for that.

I may be wrong, but I suspect most Trump supporters have better things to do with their time than watching that dumpster fire of a show.

Because if you don’t have tokenism, then it’s “racist” and “sexist” and “homophobic”

And if you have disproportionately more “minorities” in sports, national “news” “reporters” and TV commercials, well, that’s just “merit”

Stupid.

Ada should have been cut two weeks ago. He only wants to do high notes and is pretty flat or one dimensional.

Jurnee is just cute and has an amazing voice.

Suzettte is a lot of fun and I am rooting for her success, which she will eventually achieve, here in America.

She reminds of J.Lo in her early years.

Look at the history of the winners: gay, black, female they are all represented.

The only thing that is pretty much the same for 90% of them is they can’t sing for a damn. Not real singing, just nasal vamping (yes there are a couple of exceptions).

This accusation is crap.

Jonny, grist for the mill on the next live thread :)

I only watched for few minutes last night, for the first time this season.
Katy Perry is insufferable to watch & listen to.
& the contestants!!?? Where did they find them? Island of the misfits?!
There was one girl that was pretty good but that’s about it.
American Idol should’ve stayed retired, it’s now a total embarrassment.

I actually watched Jurnee. Her voice is adequate, but her phrasing bites.

hahahahaha they should check the demographics of American Idol and they will find that it ain’t the Trump supporters watching the show... or voting...

millenials and wanna be performers, ie, DEMOCRATS.
