Buju Banton Concert Cancelled Over Homophobia Concerns

BRIGHTON, UK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A Buju Banton concert scheduled for Wednesday July 6 in Brighton was cancelled due to significant pressure from a number of groups Hardbeat News reported.

The club where the performer was slated to appear released a statement yesterday on their website announcing the cancellation "Due to unprecedented pressure from the council, members of the LGBT community and the police." and that they were "Left with no choice other than to cancel" or face potentially losing their license.

Additionally, a July 29th concert by Beenie Man at Bournemouth International Center was cancelled by the police, who cited concerns about lyrics that seem to promote homophobia and violence against gays. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers.
