Car And Driver Magazine Publish Degrading Material About Fans of Death Metal

I found an ignorant article tonight on Yahoo, which included very inappropriate stereotypes of death metal fans. Basically, the author of this article stated that fans of death metal are drug addicted ex-cons with toothless children. The article is titled: 10 Used Cars to Avoid. The final section of this article includes the quotes that I am referring to and is titled: Any Camaro Wearing Death Metal Stickers. I can't believe this crap!

HOW TO SEND A LETTER TO THE EDITOR:
Editors@CARandDRIVER.com

I sent a letter to the editor this evening, expressing my dissatisfaction and demanded a retraction and a printed apology. Hopefully, those of you who are as pissed off as I was will send emails to the editors too.

I'd think a redneck car fan would be more into meth than someone with a Slayer sticker

I thought it was funny. The whole thing was pretty tongue-in-cheek.

Not a big tongue-in-cheek fan here, though I'm glad that you were able to see humor in it.

I just felt that the article was totally inappropriate. He alienated a group of people and made false accusations about their lifestyle. Pure ignorance on his part.

That's pretty funny, and pretty standard as far as "let's make fun of metal-ish people" goes. Not worth being that upset about.
