Hundreds of angry Malaysians protested a concert featuring US rapper Pitbull and the recent approval of a gambling license to a gaming company set to do business in the country.

Over 300 people demonstrated against the concert featuring the chart-topping Miami rapper, which takes place tomorrow (May 15th).

A group of Muslims associated with the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party protested a mosque in the capital’s Malay district.

“It’s bad enough that he is named after a dog, but if you watch his video clip on You Tube, his performance and lyrics are against Malaysian cultural norms,” said opposition leader Kamaruzaman Mohamad.

In related news, Pitbull announced that he is canceling an upcoming concert in Arizona over the state’s controversial immigration laws.

The rapper axed a show slated for May 31st in Phoenix, Arizona to protest the law that makes it a to be undocumented.
