Tekashi 6ix9ine’s concert at the University of South Florida has been cancelled by the show’s promotor.
The polarizing Brooklyn rapper was expected to perform at the school’s CFE Arena on September 22 but several students were outraged a convicted felon would be allowed on campus.
Subsequently, student Noemi Teutsch launched a petition calling for the school’s officials to cancel the show.
Evidently, it worked. The CFE Arena announced the news via Twitter on Friday (September 7).
6ix9ine pleaded guilty to using a child in a sexual performance in 2015. Last month, the Manhattan’s District Attorney’s Office recommended 6ix9ine register as a sex offender.
He’s due back in court on October 2 and faces one to three years in prison.
**SHOW UPDATE** The Back To School Bash featuring Tekashi 6ix9ine originally scheduled for September 22 at CFE Arena, has been canceled by the show promoter. Refunds for the show will be available at the original point of purchase.— CFE Arena (@CFEArena) September 7, 2018
