A lot has been said and done over DaBaby’s homophobic rant at the recent Rolling Loud Miami 2021 festival. And, after losing out on six music festivals and getting schooled by A-lister musicians such as Elton John and Madonna, the multi-platinum rapper decided to delete his Instagram apology for the same.

This, of course, did not really go down well with the social media users as they thronged to Twitter to slam the 29-year-old hip-hop artist once again. DaBaby had posted a lengthy apology on August 2 on his official Instagram account with close to 20 million followers. The ‘BOP’ hitmaker had asked for forgiveness for his triggering comments on the LGBTQ+ community which had further irked the Internet. The rapper is yet to make an official statement on him removing the post.

DaBaby removes Instagram apology to LGBTQ+ community

DaBaby first lost the headlining slot at Lollapalooza 2021 festival followed by getting dropped from the Governors Ball. The rapper then later also lost his slots in festivals like September’s iHeartRadio Music Festival, November’s Day N Vegas, Austin City Limits Music Festival and Music Midtown. In order to apologize, DaBaby had also released a music video for ‘Giving What It’s Supposed to Give’ where he held a sign that read “AIDS.” The clip ended with the message, “Don’t Fight Hate With Hate. My apologies for being me the same way you want the freedom to be you.”
 
Speaking of his now-deleted Instagram apology, DaBaby had stated, “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.” He 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.”



 

 



 

 

What did DaBaby really rant about?

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

‘He should’ve deleted his account instead’, says Twitter

As soon as the social media users noticed the DaBaby’s apology was no longer visible on his Instagram wall, they logged into Twitter to dismiss him. One user shared, “DaBaby deleting that apology doesn’t matter cuz it wasn’t heartfelt anyway, it was POCKET felt though when he started losing them shows.” Another said, “So what. It's his. Did you guys give Em' all this smoke, did he lose festival gigs. Nah, he went on to the grammys & performed w/Sir Elton John. The hypocrisy of it all. smh And, nah, I'm not agreeing with what Dababy said, but I'm pointing out the contradiction, but what's new.”
 
Meanwhile, one claimed, “Bruuuuuh we don’t care no more.   Cancel culture does not exist. And if he on tour this summer he gone make that money back instantly and people still gone support. Can we talk about something else now damn.” And, another added, “He realised the apology wasn't doing s**t so he "took it out his bio." One individual tweeted, “D*B*by is the most canceled person in the history of cancellations and I’m here for it. Right? I’ve never seen an un-following, label dropping, etc. He’s on the verge of being completely DONE” whereas, the next one said, “Probably cause he didn’t mean it and only posted it for damage control but fortunately it didn’t work.” One user said, “He should’ve deleted his account instead...” And, another concluded, “We can't all heal until DaBaby apologies to each and every one of us.”
