Yesterday Vic Mensa took to his Twitter page to announce that he is cancelling his July 29th performance at Detroit’s Populux Nightclub.
His decision to cancel his performance came after he caught wind of the nightclub’s racist tweet following Thursday’s police shooting at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.
According to Billboard, the original tweet read, “#blameobama all you libtards caused these deaths. #dallasshooting #f*ckblacklivesmatter.” The tweet was accompanied by a meme of a bottle of hot sauce with Birdman plastered on the front, which read, “Put some respeck on it.”
Apparently the club owners claim the Twitter page had been hacked, and released a statement via Facebook showing their support for the Black Lives Matter Movement. “We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement. Those people that know us understand who we are, our belief in equality of all people, and our love for all people.”
Since then the club has closed all social media accounts, and will be temporarily closed for at least a week. The venue has reportedly filed complaints with the FBI and the local Wayne County internet crimes task force to help identify the perpetrator.
