The City of Toronto has apologized for “inappropriate content” during rapper Belly’s Canada Day performance at Nathan Phillips Square on Monday.

In a tweet posted on Monday evening, Special Events T.O. wrote that they were sorry “for the inappropriate content during tonight’s closing performance at Nathan Phillips Square.”

Belly came under fire for using swear words during his performance.

This prompted a series of complaints from concerned attendees, who criticized Special Events T.O. for allowing the rapper to drop profanity and reference drug culture while on stage.

However, others seemed to be unbothered by Belly’s lyrics.

The four-day Canada Day celebrations at Nathan Phillips Square also featured performances by Drake, dvsn, and Majid Jordan.
