Last night I received an official statement from Alicia Keys’ publicist regarding a list I published on this website of entertainers who purportedly support Stevie Wonder’s boycott of Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law. Supporters hope the boycott pressures lawmakers.
Kelly Bush, the publicist, emailed this statement: “We question the validity of this list since Alicia’s name along with many others has appeared erroneously.”
I was given this list from a source who has been reliable in the past. So far, in addition to Stevie Wonder, two other entertainers whose names appear on the list have been identified by other news organizations as being supporters of the boycott. They are Mary Mary and R&B singer Eddie Levert.
