University President Apologizes Over ‘Profane’ Wale Performance

(AllHipHop News) Washington, D.C. based rapper Wale is in hot water again over an outdoor homecoming performance at University of Mary Robinson. University of Marty Washington students voted for the rapper to perform at the homecoming concert, which took place at the Battleground Athletic Complex around 7:30PM on Saturday (October 23rd). Three residents complained about the volume of the concert and Wale’s use of profanity, prompting the University’s President to issue an apology.”I am sorry that a high-spirited weekend on campus ended on such a negative note for some of our closest neighbors who were offended by both the volume and the content of the music,” UMW President Rick Hurley wrote in a letter to the editor of Fredericksburg, Virginia’s  Free Lance-Star.According to Hurley, he has received similar complaints in the past, but he was more concerned with the “use of profanity” this year. This is not the first time an outdoor performance by Wale has made headlines over the rapper’s use of profanity. In July, the rapper angered officials in the city of Baltimore, who were “deeply disturbed” after he used profanity and racial slurs during a free-city event. UMW’s President Rick Hurley said that from now on, the University would screen potential artists or groups before they are allowed to perform.”If there’s a crowd-friendly band like Train, maybe an outdoor concert would be appropriate,” he said.
