A rock band whose members survived the November Paris attacks got cut from the lineups of two French music festivals over one member's controversial comments.
Members of the Eagles of Death Metal were at the Bataclan to perform the night of the attacks that killed at least 130 people and injured hundreds — 89 of whom were at the show.
In February, frontman Jesse Hughes told a French TV station that France's gun control laws did nothing to stop the attacks.
