DaBaby’s homophobic rant at Rolling Loud Miami 2021 not only caused a stir on the Internet but also cost him two major music festivals i.e. Lollapalooza 2021 and the coveted Governors Ball. The rapper was dropped from the aforementioned music festivals after facing a major backlash from the industry as well as from his followers post his rant on HIV/AIDS.

After getting slammed by top global artists such as Sir Elton John, Madonna, and his former collaborator Dua Lipa, and losing two festivals, the 29-year-old artist again took the help of social media to apologize for his actions. However, it looks likes the social media users were not in a mood to forgive the ‘BOP’ hitmaker’s controversial homophobic rant as they again crucified the hip-hop artist for the act.

DaBaby's apology

After losing two music festivals and observing that his “triggering comments” on the LGBTQ+ community were not dying anytime soon, the award-winning rapper took to his Instagram account and shared a lengthy apology post with his close to 20 million followers. In an official statement, he said, “Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate, and learn from your mistakes.”

DaBaby continued, “As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me - knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance - has been challenging. I appreciate the many people who came to me with kindness, who reached out to me privately to offer wisdom, education, and resources. That's what I needed and it was received”, concluding, “I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important. Love to all. God bless.”

For the unversed, this was the third time when the rapper has apologized for his homophobic rant. He had earlier too taken the help of social media but that did not stop his followers or the celebrities to slam him for his actions.
 



 

What did DaBaby really say about LGBTQ+ community?

During his performance at Rolling Loud Miami 2021  the Ohio native stated, “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.”

He added, “Ladies, if your pu**y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.” One person in the background, which is being assumed as his DJ, added, “Let’s be real about this shit, some of y’all n****s suspect as a motherf**ker.”
 



 

‘Dababy grossly overestimated his star power’

DaBaby’s latest apology did not go down well with social media users as it irked them further. One user trolled the rapper saying, “Why i just saw dababy rummaging in my trashcan oh it's bad for him.” Another stated, “Dababy grossly overestimated his star power, you have no classic work, you’re not Kanye West, they can literally replace you with Roddy Ricch at every show you got booked and nobody gone notice lol.” The next one added, “Nah cuz dababy issuing that apology is so funny cuz he SWOREE he wasnt gonna apologize for s**t look what money make a bi**h do.”
 
Meanwhile, one made fun of him and said, “DaBaby saw his mortgage and pulled up the notes app.” One person tweeted, “DaBaby is a multi-millionaire who can afford image consultants, PR reps, and crisis management professionals. No, it was never the job of LGBTQIA people to "educate" him for free. We are too busy fighting to survive in a world where his uneducated hate is costing us our lives.” Whereas, another added, “DaBaby gave us DaBulls**t with DaApology because he fumbled DaBag for embracing DaBigot and now he’s gonna act like he’s DaPressed. DaFuckOuttaHere.” One user concluded while dismissing DaBaby saying, “DaBaby needs to fire DaPr team this is a terrible apology and he needs to cut the aids lyric from the song and video at a MINIMUM. I hope you keeps losing DaBookings cause DaApology isn’t giving what it’s supposed to give Johnathan.”
