A venue in Los Angeles has cancelled a scheduled appearance by controversial reggae singer Buju Banton following complaints from its patrons.
Banton released his latest album Too Bad earlier this month
The Jamaican dancehall star is accused of inciting homophobia by performing songs with allegedly anti-gay lyrics.
"We felt it was the right thing to do after doing some research into the matter," said Adam Manacker, general manager of the Highland nightclub.
In July, a Banton concert in Brighton was axed following similar protests.
Full refunds will be given for holders of tickets to the 2 October show.
The controversy derives from two songs released early in Banton's career - Batty Rider and Boom Bye Bye - which allegedly advocate the killing of gay men.
Banton - born Mark Anthony Myrie in 1973 - still performs the song live, prompting gay activists to campaign against his so-called "murder music".
In January, he was cleared of participating in a 2004 attack on a group of six gay men in Kingston, Jamaica.
A concert in Copenhagen, Denmark, went ahead as scheduled after organisers promised he would not fuel homophobic sentiments.
