Queen Ifrica is the latest reggae artist to suffer from a fallout with the gay community.
Last weekend 200-strong members of the gay community held a protest in New York against Ifrica who was slated to perform at the Amazura Concert Hall in Queens.
The protest was lead by openly gay City Councilman Daniel Dromm, forcing organizer John Rios to axed Queen Ifrica from the concert’s roster.
“We’re not prejudiced against anyone,” Rios said. “I welcome the gay community and we get along with everybody.”
Queen Ifrica’s fallout with the gay community started last year where she explicitly condemn homosexuality during her performance at the Independence Grand Gala in August.
She was later removed from the lineup of Rastafest in Canada following widespread protest from gays in that country.
Queen Ifrica has since release a single titled “Freedom Of Speech” where she shot back at the backlash from gays.
