Queens born rapper Action Bronson’s show has been dropped by Trinity College ahead of their annual “Spring Fling” concert, after a petition surfaced started by students, enraged by some of Bronson’s “misogynistic” and “homophobic” lyrics.
The star of Munchies’ TV series F*ck That’s Delicious was also rejected from performing at George Washington University last month, angering many with those very same “misogynistic” and “homophobic” lyrics.
The school’s Barnyard Entertainment committee took to social media to announce what had happened, saying: “We want to inform you that the rapper Action Bronson has been removed as the headliner for Spring Weekend 2016. Kehlani will still be performing. We took the petition, ‘Remove Action Bronson from Trinity College’s Spring Weekend Concert,’ which was published on Change.org, and the views expressed in the comment section very seriously. They were some of the most important factors in our decision to remove Action Bronson from our campus.”
Bronson was set to perform alongside rappers Meyhem Lauren and Big Body Bes, who frequent on Action Bronson’s Viceland show.
Bronson recently released a new single titled “Mr. 2 Face”, prior to the release of his new album, Blue Chips 7000.
