Now, every venue booked by Graham as part of a lengthy summer tour of the UK has told him not to come.
An arena in Newcastle upon Tyne became the seventh and final venue to cancel his scheduled appearance on Wednesday. The move follows similar decisions by venues in other British cities, including Birmingham, Liverpool and Sheffield.
He has more than 10 million fans across his social media profiles, but has fueled anger for several of his past comments and stances.
Graham has expressed support for conversion therapy and called homosexuality a sin and abomination. He called Islam a “wicked and evil” religion and falsely suggested former US President Barack Obama was “born a Muslim.”
In April Graham was also condemned for writing that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s homosexuality is “something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized.”
A petition calling for Newcastle’s Utilita Arena to drop Graham had been signed more than 5,000 times, and the venue told CNN they made the decision “following talks with our partners and relevant stakeholders.”
Though his tour is currently without a venue, Graham has said he intends for it to continue and will make arrangements at alternative sites.
“We are still finalising where the Graham Tour will be held, but we want to be clear that the initiative and all associated training courses will take place on the same dates as originally planned,” a statement on the BGEA’s website says. CNN has contacted the organization for comment.
