HipHopDx Unprofessional

The headline and article regarding the passing of Andre 3000's is extremely insensitive and unprofessional. Imagine him or his family scrolling through the site and seeing that. I expected more of this site, and someone should do something about that ASAP

    Franklin,

    After reviewing the article, our Editor in Chief agrees with you that this article's original headline was insensitive, and in conjunction with the light coverage within the article, did not treat the subject matter with the appropriate gravitas and respect that it was due.

    In addition, we also failed to extend our condolences to André Benjamin and his family, a standard practice in all of our reporting on similar topics.

    We've updated this article and its headline so that it more closely aligns with our standards for journalism and professionalism, and we are deeply sorry for any insensitivity or harm our work may have caused you and the rest our audience, including the Benjamin family.

    Thanks again for bringing this to our attention,

    Michael Hogenmiller
