Pink Floyd is getting ready to release a 50th-anniversary version of their critically acclaimed album “Dark Side of the Moon,” but a social media promotion has upset some of their fans.
The usage of a six-colored rainbow in the announcement of the new edition angered some fans. The rainbow in the featured image only contains six colors, like the Pride flag. One fan said, “Lose the rainbow, you’re making yourself look stupid.,” while another believed it indicated the band was “going woke.”
However, the album was released in 1973, five years before Gilbert Baker created the Pride flag, which initially had seven colors until it was reduced to six in 1979.
Would you continue using the rainbow if you were Pink Floyd? Why or why not?
