Online outrage pours in, other acts cancel after Fairbanks rappers ejected from Tanana Valley fair

Fairbanks rappers Bishop Slice and Starbuks were invited to the Tanana Valley State Fair to perform Thursday, but their set was cut short when the fair's general manager stopped the show and told them to leave the fairgrounds.

Starbuks, real name Michael Cofey, was escorted from the fairgrounds by security guards after confronting the fair's general manager, Joyce Whitehorn, about why she pulled the plug on their performance. He broadcast his questions to Whitehorn live over Facebook and kept the camera rolling as he made his way to the parking lot.

"What I'm starting to personally think, the way you approached this initially, the stage was just a little too dark for you," Cofey, who is black, says to Whitehorn.

The other performer, Julian Lillie, aka Bishop Slice, is Alaska Native.
