Public Enemy Fires Flavor Flav

On Sunday March 1st, Public Enemy announced that they would be “moving forward” without Flavor Flav, firing the hype man after 37 years.

Flavor Flav was kicked out as a result of the saga that began when he sent a cease and desist letter to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in response to a Chuck D-led concert for the Sanders campaign in Los Angeles.

“Public Enemy and Public Enemy Radio will be moving forward without Flavor Flav,” the iconic group revealed in a statement to Pitchfork. “We thank him for his years of service and wish him well.”

This move was foreshadowed in a statement from Chuck D and his attorney on Saturday as they reminded everyone that Chuck D is the sole owner of the Public Enemy trademark.

“From a legal standpoint, Chuck could perform as Public Enemy if he ever wanted to; he is the sole owner of the Public Enemy trademark. He originally drew the logo himself in the mid-’80s, is also the creative visionary and the group’s primary songwriter, having written Flavor’s most memorable lines.”

Flavor Flav was vehemently against the use of Public Enemy as a vehicle of endorsement for Bernie Sanders.

“Those who truly know what Public Enemy stands for know what time it is. There is no Public Enemy without Flavor Flav.”
