Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone co-founder, removed from Rock & Roll Hall of Fame board.

Interview about his book "The Masters" caused the removal.

Book featured only white male musicians, omitting women and people of color.

Wenner's comments criticized for diminishing Black and women artists.

Book intended to highlight career highlights, not music's diversity.

He apologized for these remarks.

Critics saw his actions as perpetuating sexism and racism.

Rolling Stone had a history of excluding genres like hip-hop

Founded in 1967 by Wenner and journalist Ralph J. Gleason.

Removal underscores the need for inclusivity in music history narratives.
