BERLIN - Big business on Sunday joined a growing chorus of criticism in Germany over the awarding of an annual music prize to a pair of rappers accused of anti-Semitic lyrics, with Airbus CEO Tom Enders adding his condemnation of the decision.
German executive Enders told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper he was shocked by what he considered widespread ambivalence about the Echo
"That hurts Germany's international reputation. Is anti-Semitism becoming acceptable in Germany?" Enders told the newspaper, adding that it was his belief that an anti-Muslim text would have generated far more outrage.
