Now Kim has also been uninvited from the Trailblazers of Gospel Music Awards ceremony.

BMI reps tell Page Six
“Given the controversy surrounding this year’s co-honoree Kim Burrell, we have asked her to not take part in the ceremony in order to allow the focus to remain on the songwriters and their music.”
“BMI was founded over 76 years ago with an open door policy to welcome songwriters across all genres, and that same spirit of tolerance, diversity and inclusiveness continues today.”
Kim Burrell's radio show at Texas Southern University has also been canceled [click here if you missed that].
