The Southern Poverty Law Center removed Dr. Ben Carson, M.D., from its “extremist watch list” and apologized to the potential GOP presidential candidate.
Carson was originally put on the list because of what the SPLC called his “anti-LGBT” views, according to Mediaite.
The list includes notorious neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
“This week, as we’ve come under intense criticism for doing so, we’ve reviewed our profile and have concluded that it did not meet our standards, so we have taken it down and apologize to Dr. Carson for having posted it,” the SPLC wrote in a statement.
The statement still stated that the SPLC still believes Carson has “made a number of statements that express views that we believe most people would conclude are extreme.”
