The Australian rapper recently faced backlash from several LGBT groups for the homophobic and racist tweets that she made in the past, and now she's made the decision to cancel her performance.
Taking to Twitter on Monday evening, Azalea apologized for her insensitive comments, which include the use of the word "homos" and "dykes."
"I am truly disappointed that I have to share this news, but I will no longer be performing at Pittsburgh Pride on June 13th. This has been a difficult decision as I truly support the event and LGBTIQA communities, however I feel my participation at this point would only serve to further distract from the true purpose of the event," she wrote.
The "Fancy" hit maker then went on to explain why she thought it best to pull out of the show.
"I am a firm believer in equality. Unfortunately in the past as a young person, I used words I should not have. The last thing I want is for something so carelessly said to be interpreted as reflective of my character," she continued.

Judging by the comments on her tweet, most people seem to think that this was a good decision, and are thankful to Azalea for her apology.

@IGGYAZALEA I got to say if these are your words, I can see a change and from this one person I accept the apology, thanks for supporting us— anthony adams (@antinoz) June 9, 2015
@IGGYAZALEA Please don't feel the need to apologise for something you said ten million years ago. Not every gay feels like that— SamMaffiaOnline.com (@SamMaffiaOnline) June 9, 2015
@IGGYAZALEA I commend u for owning up and releasing a sincere statement.— Duan (@ddior901) June 9, 2015
The cancellation of the show comes shortly after Azalea revealed she'd pulled the plug on her entire 2015 Great Escape tour.
