Fox network's streaming service Fox Soul will no longer air Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's planned "message" from God.

What's a brief history of this?

The network's move follows major outcry against the previously planned airing, which was set to take place on July 4.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper and Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt were two prominent voices that spoke out against the network's decision to provide Farrakhan a platform.

In a lengthy statement, Greenblatt wrote, "Louis Farrakhan, a notorious #antisemite & #homophobe, inexplicably continues to get airtime. He repeatedly elevates hateful conspiracies. He has called Jews "termites" and the #LGBTQ+ community 'degenerates.' He deserves condemnation, not exposure."

Tapper added, "Farrkhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?"

Fox Soul issued a Twitter release announcing the broadcast's cancellation.

Instead of airing Farrakhan's speech, the release reveals, a compilation feature including speeches from "the greatest Black leaders and thinkers" is set to air in its place.

A portion of the statement read, "This powerful and inspirational program replaces the previously scheduled Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan's 'Message to America.'"

A Fox source reportedly told the Daily Beast that such programming might include people such as Malcolm X, Cornel West, and Martin Luther King Jr.

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the Nation of Islam is an organized hate group. The SPLC adds that the group's "theology of innate black superiority over whites and the deeply racist, antisemitic and anti-LGBT rhetoric of its leaders have earned the NOI a prominent position in the ranks of organized hate."

Fox Soul — which was launched in January — aims to be "a new live and interactive streaming channel dedicated to the African American viewer."

"The programs aim to celebrate black culture and deal with real topics that impact the everyday lives of the black community through frank and insightful dialogue with local and national influencers," its website notes.

Everett Mayor Officiates Wedding On Cape Beach After Couples Reverend Cancels At Last Minute

WEST YARMOUTH (CBS) – Everett Mayor Carlo DeMaria stepped to help two strangers when their Reverend canceled at the last minute on their wedding day in West Yarmouth.

Surgeons Matt Kalliath and Naomi Wiens set to get married on Saturday. Wiens was wearing her wedding gown and ready for the ceremony, which had already been scaled down due to coronavirus.

When the couple received word their Reverend wouldn’t be able to make the ceremony due to a last-minute crisis, they frantically searched for a replacement.

The bride’s mother ran around the beach, and came across DeMaria. The Everett mayor happened to be on vacation at the time of the wedding day crisis.

DeMaria told Wiens’ mother that he did not have the authority to officiate the wedding. But he called Gov. Charlie Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, who granted him special permission to perform the ceremony.

After the beach wedding concluded, Baker called the couple to congratulate them.
