The State University of New York (SUNY) at Oneonta has cancelled Sean Kingston’s scheduled performance at their OH-Fest, joining a growing list of universities calling for the removal of Kingston as a performer after the University of Connecticut’s decision to cancel his show.
In light of the University of Connecticut’s decision to cancel Sean Kingston’s scheduled appearance at UCONNIC on April 11, students at Fordham University are urging their school to cancel Kingston’s appearance at their spring concert as well.
A movement at Fordham calling for the removal of Kingston as their school’s spring weekend headliner is predominantly gaining popularity on an Instagram account called StudentsAgainstSean, according to the Fordham Observer. The account is run by six Fordham students and follows hundreds of others.
Sean Kingston’s UCONNIC Music Festival performance has been cancelled after controversy surrounding a 2010 gang-rape allegation against the Jamaican-American singer/songwriter, according to Student Union Board of Governors president Adam Sherif and current outreach chair and incoming concert chair Jacob Stockman.
