MTV cancels Europe Music Awards due to ‘devastating events’ in Israel, Gaza

MTV cancels its Europe Music Awards ceremony, due to be held in Paris on November 5, citing the “devastating events” taking place in Israel and Gaza.

“As we watch the devastating events in Israel and Gaza continue to unfold, this does not feel like a moment for a global celebration,” the organizers say in a statement. “With thousands of lives already lost, it is a moment of mourning.”

Organizers Paramount Global say they are acting out of “an abundance of caution for the thousands of employees, crew members, artists, fans, and partners who travel from all corners of the world to bring the show to life.”
