Bob Dylan is being sued by a Croatian community group that is reportedly upset with an off-the-cuff comment he made in the French version of Rolling Stone.
Asked about the Civil War’s legacy in America and the South, the folkie responded, “That stuff lingers to this day. Just like Jews can sense Nazi blood and Serbs can sense Croatian blood.”
France doesn’t have as wide-ranging free speech laws as we do under the First Amendment, so you can sue someone for insulting you. According to the Business Insider, the suit could take up to 18 months to settle.
