Published Jan 05, 2017On the world stage, Kim Burrell was a relatively unknown gospel singer and radio personality who landed a guest spot on Pharrell's Hidden Figures soundtrack cut "I See a Victory" — that is until earlier this week, when Pharrell, Janelle Monáe and Ellen Degeneres publicly denounced her for making anti-LGBTQ comments.
The comments came from a Facebook Live video of a sermon by Burrell that heard her describing homosexuality as "perverted" and deeming it a sin. Now, in the wake of those comments and the public backlash against them, Burrell's radio show has been cancelled.
Titled Bridging the Gap, the show began airing on Texas Southern University's KTSU station last year. A representative for the college station confirmed to the Huffington Post: "The Kim Burrell show is no longer airing as part of KTSU Radio programming."
The radio show's cancellation follows Burrell's scheduled appearance on Ellen getting axed today (January 5). Instead, Pharrell performed without her and joined Degeneres for a discussion about shutting down hate speech.
