Last year, in an interview with Rolling Stone, Bob Dylan answered a question about the parallels between America in the 1860s and now. Dylan said:
The last part of that statement has Dylan in hot water with a group called the Council of Croats in France. The organization of immigrants from Croatia have reported Bob Dylan and expect him to be in court in Paris.
A representative told the Croatian Times, "He was without any doubt inciting hatred against Croatians."
The French version of Rolling Stone published Dylan's words. Dylan and Rolling Stone have been reported to French officials.
Free speech laws are different in Europe, but it seems unlikely that an American citizen like Dylan will face actual charges for this crime.
The Croatian War of Independence was fought from 1991 to 1995. Croatia wanted independence from Yugoslavia and battled Serb forces.
