Vic Mensa Cancels Detroit Concert Following "Hacked" Venue's Racist Tweet
Vic Mensa has cancelled a concert in Detroit after a racist post regarding yesterday's (July 7) mass shooting in Dallas made it onto the club's Twitter feed.

The Chicago rapper explained his position today through his own Twitter account, noting that he had pulled out of a July 29 performance at Detroit's Populux venue due to an insensitive tweet that claimed "libtards" were the reason several Dallas-area police officers were shot during a protest last night. The tweet, which has since been removed, also included the hashtags #blameobama and #fuckblacklivesmatter, as well as a meme involving rapper Birdman.
 

The venue quickly responded to Mensa's message, apologizing for "some tweets that went out last night," claiming that its account had been hacked.
 

Mensa has not responded to the club's claim that its social media presence was indeed hacked. He has, however, weighed in further on the situation in Dallas. His series of tweets called for a stop to "senseless violence," this including the killing of "innocent cops," while also strongly addressing abuse at the hands of police.
