Beenie Man pulled from Big Day Out

Jamaican reggae artist Beenie Man has been pulled from next year's Big Day Out line up following outrage over his lyrics, which among other things, encourage the execution of gay people.

Big Day Out organisers have decided not to allow Beenie Man to appear, saying his involvement would mar enjoyment of the event for many.
