A Tucker Carlson Live event scheduled for next month at The Modell Lyric in Baltimore has been canceled, according to Ticketmaster.

The Fox News Channel talk show host was scheduled to appear at the Lyric on Oct. 5, according to Ticketmaster. A similar event in Reading, Pennsylvania, was also canceled, the site states.

In a statement delivered to The Modell Lyric, Carlson’s representatives said the show was canceled because of a scheduling conflict, according to theater representative Nicoletta Macris. Refunds will be made at point of purchase, according to the statement.

Carlson has sparked criticism in the past, most recently in August when he declared white supremacy was “a hoax” on the same day President Donald Trump visited El Paso, Texas, where a white gunman who had written a racist rant killed 22 people.

His visit to Baltimore was opposed by the grassroots group Boycott Racism in Baltimore City, which posted about the cancellation on Facebook and referred to Carlson as a racist.
