The rapper had been due to take the stage for George Washington University's annual Spring Fling concert earlier this month (16). However, in March (16), the school's newspaper, The GW Hatchet, published a piece calling for Action to be removed from the line-up due to the controversy he has courted throughout his career, and he was subsequently axed.

Following the cancellation, Bronson apologised, stating, "I have never had any issues with anyone's sexual orientation or gender transitioning. I'm far, far from perfect and I recognise my flaws and I'm making an effort to grow and be a better human."

Students at Trinity College in Connecticut have now also raised concerns and launched a petition to have him removed from the bill of an upcoming gig because of his song Consensual Rape. And bosses at the school have now cancelled the show.

"In the beginning of March we were made aware of the severity and depth of some of Action Bronson's lyrics," a statement on the university's website reads. "Following news that Action Bronson was being removed as the headlining artist for Spring Weekend at The George Washington University, our executive-board committee voted on March 31st to remove Action Bronson from our Spring Weekend concert because of his lyrics, music, videos, and the misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia that they promote..."

Bronson has yet to comment on Trinity's decision.
