Officials in Malaysia have banned Muslims from attending an upcoming Black Eyed Peas concert in the country — because the show is sponsored by a beer company.
The Peas hitmakers are due to perform at a theme park in Kuala Lumpur as part of Irish draft giant Guinness’ 250th anniversary concert next month, but local officials have prohibited Muslims from attending because concertgoers will be drinking.
“Muslims cannot attend. Non-Muslims can go and have fun,” an official at the Ministry of Information, Communication and Culture said in a statement Thursday. “The party is only open to non-Muslims aged 18 years and above.”
