UB40 Want Nothing to Do With Brett Kavanaugh

As if the main points Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s previous habits weren’t already painful sufficient, on Monday evening, the New York Times reported that he was as soon as concerned in a bar struggle with a person he thought was the lead singer that largely white reggae band UB40 ( “Red Red Wine” fame). The incident occurred in 1985 when Kavanaugh, an undergrad at Yale on the time, mistook a 21-year-old man at an area bar for Ali Campbell, the lead singer UB40 (who had carried out within the space that evening), and allegedly threw ice and a beer at him, inflicting damage. Kavanaugh was not arrested for the assault, however he and 4 different males have been questioned by police. (According to the report, Kavanaguh “didn’t need to say if he threw the ice or not.”) UB40 have now responded to the information saying the band, like most individuals, needs nothing to do with this Brett Kavanaugh mess. “Obviously, there should have been an assault as a result of the police have been referred to as and a report was filed,” a spokesperson for UB40’s Robin Campbell (Ali’s brother) tells Billboard, “however this can be a case mistaken identification and has nothing to do with UB40.” Oh, how we want that have been true.
