Outspoken Chicago rapper and Roc Nation artist Vic Mensa canceled his show in Detroit due to racist tweets from the hosting Populux venue.
The rapper was set to perform July 29 with Joey Purp as part of his Back With a Vengeance Tour, before Populux posted the very inflammatory statements to their twitter account, prompting the artist to back out of the show.
The club would then issue an apology soon after the racist remarks were posted with claims of being hacked.
The controversial statements from the venue were in response to the murder of five police at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas yesterday.
The tweets certainly didn’t go over too well with the MC, as the Black Lives Matter movement is a cause that Vic Mensa has shown much support for in the past.
Vic released his EP There’s Alot Going On last month and is currently working on his debut album Traffic.
Check out the controversial tweet from Detroit club Populux and the soon to follow apologies below.

We sincerely apologize about the views expressed in some tweets that went out last night. Our account was hacked.
