Franklin family found eulogy 'distasteful'
Aretha Franklin's family have said that they found the closing eulogy at her funeral offensive and distasteful. The Rev. Jasper Williams Jr. said black America was losing "its soul" and described children raised without a father as "abortion after birth". "He spoke for 50 minutes and at no time did he properly eulogise her," said Vaughn Franklin, the singer's nephew, speaking on behalf of the family.
