Kim Burrell’s radio show has been cancelled due to the singer’s homophobic rants.

Burrell referred to “the perverted homosexual spirit” during a sermon at a church in Houston, Texas. Several celebrities such as Janelle Monae, Yolanda Adams, Taraji P. Henson and Pharrell have denounced Burrell’s remarks.

The singer was set to perform alongside Pharrell on The Ellen DeGeneres show, but announced publicly that Burrell will no longer be a guest on the show. And now Huffington Post is reporting that her radio show distributed through Texas Southern University has been cancelled.

Huffington Post reports:

Gospel singer Kim Burrell felt the full consequence of homophobia this week when her radio program was cancelled following an anti-gay rant.

Texas Southern University announced Wednesday evening that Burrell’s radio show “Bridging The Gap” would no longer broadcast on the KTSU airwaves, the station that carried the program. The show first began airing through KTSU seven months ago.

“The Kim Burrell show is no longer airing as part of KTSU Radio programming,” a representative of KTSU confirmed to The Huffington Post.
