Pitbull is heading out on his “Mr. Worldwide’s Carnaval” tour but he is not making any stops in Phoenix. The Miami rapper will do this to protest Arizona’s new controversial immigration law.

His announcement came via his Twitter page:

“I am canceling my concert in Phoenix on May 31… How is the country we enjoy and love bcuz of its human rights, freedom, opportunity and that has been built by immigrants, now start 2 deny them??.. It is contradicting 2 everything the USA stands 4,”.

He was scheduled to return to the states later this month and perform at the Celebrity Theater in Phoenix for a Memorial Day weekend concert. Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Perez and attended Coral Park Senior High, is highly popular on the Internet. His video: I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) was named by Google the top YouTube view-getter last year. So far, the video has received 120 million hits.

He isn’t alone in doing this. Cypress Hill and others have also canceled shows due to this law. Pitbull is prepping the release of his first Spanish-only album, Armando, a tip of the hat to his real name Armando Perez. Fans can expect that album in the summer and another album, PlanetPit, in the Fall.
