Sizzla Kalonji is under attack from LGBT activist groups amidst the Jamaican dancehall artist’s US tour.
California lobby groups, Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and Queer Humboldt, have launched campaigns to prevent Sizzla from performing at an upcoming stage show in San Francisco.
The campaign was launched following news that the “Solid As A Rock” deejay, who performed at Reggae on the River in Humboldt County earlier this month, has gotten his US visa instated after 8 years.
On Facebook, Sister Roma of Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence writes:
“Props to Ira Sandler and 1015 for canceling this hate-filled, homophobic monster’s concert,” adding, “Sad part is, he’s probably gay…”
Sizzla was set to perform at SoMa nightclub 1015 Folsom on September 23 as part of his “Back in the USA” tour. However, as of August 23, 1015’s owner, Ira Sandler, announced that the show was canceled.
Meanwhile, Sizzla has shows confirmed in Santa Cruz, California on September 26, and at Petaluma’s Mystic Theatre on September 27.
