Cash Family “Sickened” by Neo-Nazi Wearing Johnny Cash Shirt

On behalf of the Johnny Cash family, daughter Rosanne Cash released a passionate statement on Facebook yesterday (Aug. 16) denouncing the association of her father to neo-Nazism after a video surfaced that depicted a “self-proclaimed neo-Nazi” wearing a Johnny Cash t-shirt in Charlottesville, Va.

“We were alerted to a video of a young man in Charlottesville, a self-proclaimed neo-Nazi, spewing hatred and bile. He was wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the name of Johnny Cash, our father. We were sickened by the association,” wrote Rosanne, in part, on behalf of her siblings Kathy, Cindy, Tara and John Carter.

Rosanne concluded the post with: “To any who claim supremacy over other human beings, to any who believe in racial or religious hierarchy: we are not you. Our father, as a person, icon, or symbol, is not you. We ask that the Cash name be kept far away from destructive and hateful ideology. We choose love.”
