(Los Angeles, CA) -- An "American Idol" top five finalist is no longer on the show, and not because he was voted off.  

Caleb Kennedy dropped out after a KKK-themed video emerged. It shows him standing next to someone wearing a klansmen-like hood. The country singer apologized on Instagram, telling fans his actions weren't meant to be taken in that way. He says it's not an excuse and promised to take time to work on himself.
