    Beenie Man Banned From MTV Concert
    The music network pulls the plug on the dancehall singer for his anti-gay lyrics

    Jamaican dancehall star Beenie Man has been pulled from a Miami concert associated with this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards after groups planned to protest some of his anti-gay songs, the network has announced.

    South Florida gay activists planned to express their disapproval at Saturday's concert of such Beenie Man lyrics as "I'm dreaming of a new Jamaica, come to execute all the gays" and "Queers must be killed."

    I already knew this before it happened. You cannot be anti-gay and in South Florida at the same time.

    well

    That's what he gets. You don't get love by spreading hate. I for one never liked reggae but Beenie Man was the exception. Because of his actions I no longer play his music. That's just me though.

    Umph! I guess this isn't his year!....I could've swore I saw something about protesters not wanting him to perform at a concert in Brittain either. (Artist Facts/Info on MUSIC CHOICE ...cable). Didn't go into specifics as to why though.
