Two Róisín Murphy gigs are axed in London as record label refuses to promote new album and hands proceeds to trans lobby amid row over her post about puberty blockers. Then comes the usual apology to the tyrants

Two Róisín Murphy gigs have been cancelled at short notice after a social media pile-on by trans activists following the Irish singer’s comments about puberty blockers.

The Sing It Back artist’s record label is also reported to have ceased promotion on her new album, Hit Parade, which is scheduled to come out on Friday, September 8, and will donate all proceeds to trans-supporting charities.

The former frontwoman for top ten hitmakers Moloko, who has since had a successful solo career, issued a grovelling apology this week after an online pile-on by Twitter users claiming to be LGBTQ+ allies.

Murphy was barracked by activists after branded puberty blockers ‘f******’ on her private Facebook page and appearing to call trans children ‘little mixed-up kids’.

Now two shows featuring the 50-year-old in London next week to coincide with the launch of the album have been axed, with supporters branding it an example of cancel culture.

Murphy had been due to play two acoustic shows and take part in two signings at Rough Trade East in London on Friday, September 8, but these have been cancelled at short notice with no reason given as to why.

It comes mid reports that her record label, Ninja Tune, will stop its public relations campaign for her new album and will release it without promotion.

The independent label has not commented publicly so far on the row, but a source told the Toronto Star the label plans to give all proceeds from the album to organisations that combat transphobia.

British choreographer Rosie Kay lambasted the reports, writing on Twitter that the way Murphy was being treated was ‘appalling’.

She wrote: ‘Róisín Murphy if you need support please let me know. There is an army of artists out here who support you and seek to end cancel culture.

‘This is bad for audiences, bad for women, bad for children and deadening to the arts.’

MailOnline has contacted Ninja Tune and Rough Trade, and has attempted to reach out to Murphy, for comment.

The electropop singer was hounded after simply writing a comment from her private Facebook page expressing concern about children being given the drugs.
