The Baltimore Orioles issued a statement announcing that Diplo’s post-match concert on July 24 was cancelled due to allegations of sexual assault.
“The Orioles will not have their upcoming post-match performance at Orioles Park in Camden Yards on July 24,” the team wrote on Twitter. “Fans who purchase live passes and match tickets for the Diplo concert on July 24 will receive a refund.”
Diplo was hit by two sexual assault lawsuits.

The concert was strongly opposed by many people. Even the Baltimore Sun newspaper wrote a letter attacking the decision to make Diplo perform.
“The Orioles always promote in our great city as a family-friendly entertainment choice. They have also done a lot of great things for women and women’s rights, including celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s voting rights,” the letter said. “Given the news released on July 7 that Diplo was accused of sexual assault after forcing a fan to perform oral sex on him after a show in Las Vegas in 2019. This is very worrying. She claimed that it was He shot…If the Orioles are such a family-friendly team and truly care about women, they need to separate from Diplo and stand up and cancel this post-match concert.”
