Gospel singer Kim Burrell's career seems to be tanking after a sermon she gave calling gay people "perverts," went viral.

After being barred from performing on the "Ellen" show and drawing the ire of Frank Ocean's mother, who said she wanted Burrell's vocals cut from her son's song "Godspeed," officials from Texas Southern University announced the school will no longer broadcast her radio show, according to Texas ABC affiliate station KTRK.

In a statement released Wednesday, TSU officials say Burrell's show "Bridging the Gap" would no longer air on the college's radio station KTSU.

The show first debuted in June and featured the singer's "unique take on music, life and society." It aired on Sunday afternoons on 90.9 FM, Chron.com notes.
