UPDATED! New title: Raffi Takes Huffington Post To School
RIP Baby Beluga: Whale that inspired famed Raffi song dies
URGENT UPDATE: Dear gentle Raffi threw himself into a twitter fight with HuffPo over what he felt was a disservice to that whale. He took offense to the angle that the specific whale that the song was about had died and that now thanks to sloppy reporting, it was a song about a dead whale.
HuffPo, I’d quake if I were you. Your readers are all Raffia fans, or as Raffi refers to them on Tiwtter: #belugagrads (small update: HuffPo did indeed quake and made a correction at the end of the original artlcle.)
UPDATE 2: There’s so much written all over the internet right now I hardly know what to link. I had a little chuckle at the subheadline on the Hollywood Reporter’s article but they really captured the essence of what’s happening now. Also that whale was not a baby.
Raffi Clarifies ‘Baby Beluga’ Drama: Hit Song Not About Dead Whale
Mass confusion indeed. Raffi is very busy setting things straight and the #belugagrads have responded. I guess I’m one of them.
