This comment generated a lot of uproar on social media and went as far as cancelling of a show set to promote "Hidden Figures", a movie produced by Pharrell Williams. The singer, who was due to sing with Pharrell Williams and Janelle Monáe on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, has now been dropped. “For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show,” read a tweet from the presenter on Tuesday.
Not only that, Frank Ocean’s mother, Katonya Breaux, tweeted: “Son, can we crop Kim Burrell’s voice out of your song?” she refers to the song "Godspeed" by Frank Ocean featuring Kim Burrell.
