Ye Has Cancelled His Coachella 2022 Performance

As per reports, Ye has cancelled his headline performance at this year’s Coachella festival. According to TMZ and Variety, the rapper and producer was supposed to headline the closing night of the two-weekend event, which takes place 15th to 17th April and 22nd to 24th April, but that will no longer be the case.

It’s unclear why Ye has cancelled his performance at the California fest, but it’s also been claimed that Travis Scott, who was scheduled to perform alongside Ye, will not be performing as well. The revelation comes after fans filed a petition last month to get Ye removed from the festival’s line-up, which has nearly 50,000 signatures.

Following Ye’s ban on Instagram for a post against Trevor Noah that featured racial obscenities, a person using the alias Kim Pete started a petition on 17th March. On a recent episode of The Daily Show, Noah discussed Ye’s behaviour of ex-wife Kim Kardashian, calling it “terrifying to watch.”

Ye threatened to pull out of Coachella in February after mistaking Billie Eilish’s comments for accusations directed towards Travis Scott. His scheduled performance at this year’s Grammy Awards, which took place on 3rd April, was cancelled due to his “concerning online behaviour.”

According to Variety, the Grammys contacted Ye’s team to inform them that a planned performance will “unfortunately” be cancelled owing to Ye’s “concerning internet behaviour,” citing a report in The Blast. Ye won two Grammys at the ceremony: Best Melodic Rap Performance for ‘Hurricane’ and Best Rap Song for ‘Jail.’
