Newsclip®: [Entertainment] Padres under fire for mishandling gay chorus' anthem - San Francisco Chronicle

"The chorus said on its Facebook page that 100 of its members gathered to perform the song before the game Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers when the Padres instead played the recorded voice of a woman singing the anthem. Billy Bean, an MLB vice president for social responsibility and inclusion, tweeted Sunday that 'it was very unfortunate that there was a technical error' that prevented the chorus from performing but added that the Padres 'have supported our inclusion message at MLB without hesitation.'",
