Grand opening, grand closing. Just days after debuting the trailer for their forthcoming docu-series Generation KKK, the program has been cancelled all together. Naturally, anything involving the KKK would be met with extreme outrage, and many thought A&E to be attempting to “normalize” the hate group. The name of the show did not help, either. Upon seeing the trailer, it became clear that they were instead focusing more on how such a hate group negatively impacts the children involved, and even followed around a handful of people who were trying to escape. However, many did not see the trailer and backlash immediately ensued, so A&E opted to change the name to Escaping the KKK: A Documentary Series Exposing Hate in America to help avoid confusion. That didn’t work either.
