Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thedailybeast.com: “Diddy Facing Backlash for ‘Uncanceling’ Travis Scott and Morgan Wallen at the BBMAs”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The BBMAs host proclaimed, “I’m here to forgive, to unify, to celebrate and to have everybody be free.”

Throughout tonight’s Billboard Music Awards, first-time host Diddy made it abundantly clear that the televised show was his production more than anyone else’s, dropping the N-word during his opening monologue, promoting Ciroc, and giving out his own REVOLT Black Excellence Award.

He also decided to use his powers as host and executive producer to officially “uncancel” some of the night’s more controversial performers—namely rapper Travis Scott and country singer Morgan Wallen.

“We’re uncanceling the canceled,” Diddy said about an hour and a half into the show. “[Brother] Love does not rock like that. I looked at Morgan’s situation. I looked at Travis’ situation. And I said, man, I got some power to do something about that because we can’t start that in the music industry or even in life, period. So I’m here to forgive, to unify, to celebrate and to have everybody be free.”

Scott has notably been out of the spotlight since the fatal crowd rush at his annual Astroworld Festival last year that left 10 people dead. Fans have since accused the Houston rapper of being liable in the tragedy, and he’s currently facing a number of civil lawsuits from victims’ families.
