No, no, it's not so bad as you think.

"Cancelled" can be spelled "canceled" or "cancelled."

Your upset is misplaced...you mongoloidal bigot.

Maybe he can still do the soundtrack for Kirk Cameron's next straight to video extravaganza.

Well, except that the fundies are more racist than they are homophobic. But apart from that minor hiccup it's Sizzla's best shot at a career now.

Thank you for saying no to hate music!

I am happy to tell you that after our massive protest, the events of Sizzla in Stockholm, Oslo, Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga and Valencia have been cancelled. This sends out a very positive message. Those who call for violence and murder are not welcome in our society.

But there is still work to do. We still demand the cancellation of the remaining 16 events. In 2011 Sizzla already violated the Reggae Compassionate Act in which he promised not to sing his songs that call for violence and murder of LGBT people, which he had just signed two years before. We don't want another empty promise. We demand the remaining locations withdraw their support of this artist. We say no to hate music!

Together we can make a change!

Thank you!

Sizzla signed a Reggae Compassionate Act agreement in 2007, agreeing not to promote hatred and violence. His signed RCA agreement is online.

Soon after signing the agreement he denied that he had signed it. He violated the agreement before the end of 2007. You can see the violation in a YouTube video.

Sizzla has been making anti LGBT comments and performing "kill LGBT" songs in 2011 and in 2012. He has been singing one of his "kill LGBT" songs from the "Dancehall Dossier," "Get To The Point," on this current 2012 tour in Europe.

Leon,
A "Batty Man" is a homosexual. Are you saying that Sizzla is a homosexual? Maybe you should do a little more cultural research before you declare yourself a Rastafarian and move to Jamaica.

I am a dedicated Reggae fan and an ally to the gay community. I like Sizzla's music and respect his artistic intensity while disagreeing with some of his messages. I don't support banning artists for content. If you don't support his message don't buy his records or attend his concerts. You don't have to make it taboo just because it doesn't like you; just dislike it in equal measure. Maybe it's an American bias but I don't support banning hate speech in general.

Anyone who wants to kill GLBT's doesn't need to be able to perform ANYWHERE, except maybe in his momma's basement.
