CAPITOL RECORDS RESPONDS TO CLAIM THAT EXEC CALLED HER 'AN OLD N**GER DOUCHEBAG: In Tina Turner's new HBO Max documentary Tina, it was revealed that the music icon was once called "an old n**ger douchebag" by a top executive in the 1980s. Executive John Carter said during the documentary, “The new regime comes in, and, like any new regime, they have their own idea of what they want to do. So I flip out, go downstairs, and I say, ‘Hey, this is my act.’ And the classic quote is, ‘Carter, you signed this old ni–er douchebag?’” In a statement to The Wrap, the record label said, “The incident that John Carter describes in the HBO documentary, ‘Tina,’ would have occurred 40 years ago when Capitol was under different ownership and management, and we’re only now learning of those reprehensible and appalling comments. Capitol Music Group is proud of our association with Tina Turner and the role we play in ensuring her music will continue to inspire new generations for decades to come.”
