Poor girl, she couldn’t get right if she tried! Iggy Azalea was announced as the headlining act for the forthcoming “Pittsburgh Pride In The Street” festival on June 13, but the event’s organizers have received large amounts of protests from the LGBTQ community, demanding that the Australian-born rapper be removed from the line-up.

A Facebook event page titled, “Shut It DOWN (No ICKY at Pride 2015)” was made to get Iggy Azalea removed as the headlining act. The page’s About Me section reads as follows:

“Icky is a known homophobic, racist, culturally appropriating ‘rapper’ (term used losely). Delta has the reputation of advocating for the LGBTQ community in Pittsburgh, but there is little to no evidence of Delta advocating for anybody but affluent cis gay white men. Let’s shut this down.”


Not sure what will happen as far as if she will be replaced, and if so, by whom?
