Sri Lanka Tourism Minister Upset About Akon Cancellation

| Filed under: Akon


Although Akon apologized for the controversy in the video for Sexy Chick, his will no longer be performing in Sri Lanka due to outrage over the sacrilegious video.

But the country is gonna lose a lot of money because of the cancellation!

"We were expecting about 5,000 to 6,000 tourists from India, the Maldives and Malaysia to watch the show. The mileage we would have got would have been priceless," said tourism chief Achala Jagoda.

He does realize that it would have been wrong to grant Akon a work permit after all the dramaz, but insists "this does not mean that we have a Taliban-style Buddhist following in Sri Lanka. Some parts of Akon's video were not culturally suitable for us."

Maybe next time - if Akon behaves himself!

    make up your fucking mind, sri lanka - either you want western performers there and believe in free speech through the arts or you DON'T. i don't blame akon for canceling. if they wanna be stuck-up prudes who go all violent because of some skin or some drug references or whatever they got their repressive panties all in a bunch over, then they are going to have to settle for whatever lame-ass boring shit the censors deem "culturally suitable" for their fragile little brains. akon does not have to whip up special songs, videos or performances just for your special "needs". fuck off, already.
