Coming off its lowest-rating season ever, the show is now faced with a new problem.

Who sued American Idol? What kind of case did American Idol facing? Is it really a big deal?

Excited to know what went wrong in American Idol that why they are facing this kind of a mess. Well, check out the story below!
In the latest celebrity update, a group of 10 black former ‘American Idol’ contestants have sued Fox show, claiming that producers dug up their arrest histories to get them thrown off because of their race according to TMZ.

Furthermore, the contestants say they were unfairly painted as criminals and sexual deviants, despite that none was ever charged with a crime for which they were arrested, according to the report.

In fact, they say only blacks were targeted with the smear campaign.

Here’s the 10 black contestants who are suing ‘Idol’ for alleged racism: Jaered Andrews (Season 2); Terrel and Derrell Brittenum (Season 5); Corey Clark (Season 2); Thomas Daniels (Season 6); Chris Golightly (Season 9); Ju’Not Joyner (Season 8); Jacob John Smalley (Season 2); Akron Watson (Season 6) and Donnie Williams (Season 3).
