The Baltimore Orioles released a statement announcing that July 24 postgame concert by Diplo has been canceled amid allegations of sexual assault.
“The Orioles will not hold the upcoming postgame performance on July 24 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards,” the team tweeted. “Fans who purchased field passes with game tickets to the Diplo concert on July 24 will receive a refund.”
Diplo has been hit with two sexual assault lawsuits.
DIPLO ACCUSED OF SEXUAL ASSAULT
The concert received backlash from many. Even the Baltimore Sun penned a letter slamming the decision to have Diplo perform.
“The Orioles always promote being a family-friendly entertainment option in our great city. They also have done great things for women and women’s rights, including celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s voting rights,” the letter stated. “This is very concerning in light of the news that came out on July 7 that Diplo is accused of sexual assault after he forced a fan to perform oral sex on him after a show in Vegas in 2019, which she has claimed he filmed… If the Orioles are such a family-friendly team, and truly care about women, they need to separate themselves from Diplo and stand up and cancel this postgame concert.”
