Rastafarian singer Capleton continues to be dogged by gay rights activists as one876entertainment understands that a concert planned last weekend with the deejay coincided with Pride Week - a weeklong celebration of gay pride in Toronto - and he was forced to move his Canada Day concert from downtown Toronto to Brampton. The singer was originally booked to perform at the Sound Academy, the waterfront concert venue on June 30th.

 

Capleton, who is known for music which preaches the virtues of Rastafarian tenets of purity and individual rights, is also known for anti-gay anthems such as 'Bun Out the Chi Chi', and "Mi No Lotion Man'.

However, in recent years, he seems to have softened his anti-gay stance and in 2007, Capleton signed the Reggae Compassionate Act, condemning homophobia. Despite this, numerous concerts have been cancelled by overzealous gay rights activists who contend that he continues to use anti-gay slurs to hype his audience.
