The Latin Trap artist was scheduled to perform for the first time at the Coliseo de Puerto Rico on Oct. 12.

Anuel AA couldn’t have said it any better: His career skyrocketed from 0 to 100 the day he was released from prison on July 17, as he expressed on Instagram.

His debut album Real Hasta La Muerte earned him his first No. 1 on the Top Latin Albums chart (on the list dated July 28) and in less than two months, he’s dropped new music, and collaborations with some of the hottest names of the moment, such as Ozuna and Tekashi 6ix9ine.

In the midst of his blooming career, the Latin Trap artist recorded a nearly nine-minute "tiraera" called “Intocable,” which was meant to be for his music rival, Cosculluela.

However, even though rap battles are a common thing in the Latin urban scene, Anuel AA’s strong lyrics -- which included a negative reference to the LGBTQ community and slut-shamed a famous female model that has HIV -- have led to the cancellation of his first show in Puerto Rico’s Coliseo on Oct. 12.

"I do not support, nor do I sympathize with the Anuel’s expressions and for this reason, I have decided to retire as producer of his concert,” expressed Paco Lopez, No Limit Entertainment president and producer, in a press statement. “The people of Puerto Rico have had a very hard year, and now more than ever it is necessary that we are united."

Anuel AA has since released a video giving his fans and Puerto Ricans an apology, calling this the worst mistake of his career. Here’s how people on Twitter are reacting to the controversy.
