Gospel great Kirk Franklin says he will boycott the Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, after discovering part of his speech was edited out during the Oct. 15 broadcast on TBN. Kirk says that Trinity Broadcasting Network, cut out his remarks on Atatiana Jefferson, the 28-year-old who was shot and killed in her home by a Fort Worth police officer. This was the second time his speech at a Doves ceremony had been edited for television to remove a statement on officer-related shootings.

Kirk says he will boycott “any events affiliated with or for the Dove Awards, Gospel Music Association or TBN, until tangible plans are put in place to protect and champion diversity, especially where people of color have contributed their gifts, talents and finances to help build the viability of these institutions.”
