Iggy Azalea has been officially yanked from Pittsburgh Pride's performance line-up.

Azalea was supposed to headline the festivities this Saturday, June 13th, but has come to the "difficult decision" to no longer perform, as she feels her "participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event." Which is a pretty fair estimation, as Azalea's booking led to significant backlash from the City Council President and Pittsburgh's LGBTQIA community, who called for the formation of an alternative "Roots Pride" celebration.
