Iggy Azalea Cancels Pittsburgh Pride Performance After Protest Backlash

She already canceled her stadium tour, and now Iggy Azalea has dropped out of a June 13 performance at the Pittsburgh Pride festival.

The reason? Several organizations backed out of the event in protest because of Azalea’s past history of homophobic and racist comments.

Wrote Azalea (in part) of her reasoning, “This has been a difficult decision as I truly support the event and LGBTIQA communities however I feel my participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event.”

“I am firm believer in equality. Unfortunately in the past as a young person, I used words I should not have. The last thing I want is for something so careless said to be interpreted as reflective of my character.”
