After a several tweet-long thread about the harassment she has been facing from Babyface fans, singer Anita Baker has decided to take the singer off of her tour.
She revealed on Twitter that she has reached her breaking point when it comes to the comments made online about her. “After Silently, Enduring Cyber Bulling/Verbal Abuse & Threats of Violence from the Fan Base, of Our Special Guest/Support Act. In the Interest of Personal Safety. I will continue, ‘The Songstress Tour,’ alone. Appropriate refunds will be made. Blessings,” Baker wrote on Tuesday while simultaneously posting a new tour poster that no longer features Babyface.
Babyface addressed the situation in a statement shared with Variety by his representative. “I am saddened by the news that Anita Baker has decided to remove me from ‘The Songstress Tour.’ It’s unfortunate and disheartening to see how things have played out via social media. While I was looking forward to the rest of the dates, I have nothing but love & respect for Anita and I wish her the best for the remainder of her tour.”
The next stop on the tour will be June 30th at the United Center in Chicago.
