DaBaby has been heavily criticized by fans for his homophobic comments at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami.
During his Rolling Loud set, DaBaby said: “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up … Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d–k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
He later apologized to the LGBTQ+ community in a statement posted on Instagram which was later taken down from his account for mysterious reasons. This came after getting dropped by various festivals where he was booked on the lineup. “I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the artful and triggering comments I made,” he said. “Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important.”
It looks like he can still keep the humor going as he doesn’t look too stressed with the situation. In an Instagram Story with his young daughter, DaBaby joked about being “canceled” and as a result, switching to R&B music.
“They done canceled yo daddy twin,” he wrote in his caption. “I’m switching to R&B. F**k a rap,” he said while singing along to J. Cole and Miguel’s hit ‘Power Trip’. Watch the clip below.
