MTV has cancelled its Europe Music Awards ceremony, initially scheduled for November 5 in Paris, citing the ongoing “devastating events” in Israel and Gaza.
The organisers explained in a statement recently, that given the loss of thousands of lives, it doesn’t seem appropriate for a global celebration.
The event’s cancellation comes as a moment of mourning. Performers like David Guetta, Jung Kook of BTS, and Thirty Seconds to Mars were set to participate.
The decision was made out of caution for the safety of those involved in bringing the show to life, including employees, crew members, artists, fans, and partners.
