KS 107.5 Summer Jam Canceled in Denver Following DaBaby's On Stage Remarks at Rolling Loud Miami

Audacy, Inc. rhythmic station KS 107.5's annual Summer Jam has been canceled following crude and homophobic remarks made by headliner DaBaby at Rolling Loud Miami music festival last week. The Grammy-nominated rapper had been scheduled to headline Summer Jam at Denver's Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre on Saturday, Sept. 4.

"In light of various factors, including DaBaby's recent comments, along with our concert partners, we have chosen to cancel this year's Summer Jam," said a statement from KS 107.5. "We look forward to working on Summer Jam lineups for years to come with our love of music and each other."

DaBaby issued a second apology yesterday following a previous apology that didn't quite meet the level of expectation for contrition. Before he issued the apologies he went on a rant against those who felt his on stage "call and response" shouts were controversial. Clearly DaBaby should have sought out a publicist before making any comments on social media. It's obvious his people did reach out to a public relations expert before issuing his second apology.

In recent days DaBaby has been removed from four major concerts across the country.

Tickets for KS 107.5 Summer Jam will refunded from the original point of purchase.

However some twitter users are questioning why the concert couldn't move forward without DaBaby as the headline artist.

Here's a break down of everything happening with DaBaby and his recent controversies from Complex News.
