Ringo Starr is the latest artist to cancel an event in North Carolina after the state passed a bill which removed anti-discrimination protections for the LGBT community.
The former Beatles drummer announced on Wednesday he would not perform in the state on June 18.
"I'm sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love," Starr said in a statement.
Last week, Bruce Springsteen canceled his April 10 show in Greensboro, North Carolina. In a statement on his website, Springsteen said this law burdens the LGBT community and strips them of the ability to protect themselves when their human rights are violated.
"To my mind, it's an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress," Springsteen said in the statement.
Major corporations have also taken a stand against the law. Deutsche Bank has halted its plans to expand in the state. PayPal has canceled its expansion plans as well. Chief executives of more than 80 companies including Apple, Facebook, and Bank of America signed a letter denouncing the bill.
On Tuesday, Gov. Pat McCrory of North Carolina said he would like to restore the right to sue over discrimination, but would not challenge a law regarding gender-specific bathroom access.
