After getting schooled by A-listers such as Sir Elton John, Madonna, and Dua Lipa over his homophobic rant, DaBaby received support from TV presenter Nick Cannon. The ‘Wild ‘N Out’ host came to his rescue claiming he was saying “no” to the cancel culture. Rapper TI had also extended his support to DaBaby earlier saying the LGBTQ+ community was bullying rappers.

While appearing on ‘The Breakfast Club’, the 40-year-old comedian and actor gave his two cents on DaBaby’s heated controversy for which the latter has been canceled despite apologizing several times on social media. Cannon, who himself got slammed over anti-Semitic statements in 2020, said that it takes great strength to step up and apologize adding that the rapper could endure a period of growth. For the unversed, DaBaby got dropped from six music festivals including the Lollapalooza 2021 and the Governors Ball following his Rolling Loud Miami 2021 festival fiasco.

‘He’s swinging just so he could get out’, says Nick Cannon

Speaking during the interview on radio station 105.1, the ‘Drumline’ actor stated, as reported by New York Post, “First of all, I think not only in the black community and I’ve experienced it but definitely just men a lot of times, we have that ego. We believe apologizing is weakness when it actually takes great strength to step up to anyone and say, ‘I was wrong.” Cannon continued, “I know Baby. And that’s a strong brother. That man just lost his pops, his brother, all the things that he [has been through] and still to have that big smile that he has every day, knowing everything that he comes [from]? I grew up in Charlotte [for] part of my life- I know that life,” adding. “He a fighter. We’ve seen his back against the wall. He’s swinging. He’s swinging just so he could get out. We all have to accept emotion.”

The actor further shed light on the controversy saying, “I challenge all these people who actually want to cancel somebody, and even specifically in DaBaby’s situation, let’s use this as an opportunity for education. Because that’s what happened in my scenario to where I still stuck true to the truths. [My minister] told me that I don’t ever want falsehood to come out of my mouth, so if I’m saying something that is not correct about your community, show me where I’m incorrect. Correct me.” He continued, “If I’m saying these things about the LGBTQIA community, show me where I’m wrong. Not only is that going to help me, but you’re going to help so many other people who think like me. There are so many DaBabys out there.” Concluding his remarks, Nick Cannon said that we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him. “This is a moment where we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him because if we can do that, watch how many mentalities will change in the hip-hop community.”


What did DaBaby really say about LGBTQ+ community?

During his performance at Rolling Loud Miami 2021 in July, the ‘BOP’ hitmaker 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.” The Ohio native 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.”

‘Nick Cannon and DaBaby should be canceled’

Social media users who have time and again canceled Nick Cannon did not hesitate at all to do the honors again. Speaking on his recent statement, they brutally slammed the TV host where one of them said, “Nick Cannon isn't gay - and thus doesn't get a vote on how gay people respond to being offended by the DaBaby. Period.” While another tweeted, “Nick Cannon and Dababy should be canceled.”
The next one shared, “If Nick Cannon wants to liken his stupidity to DaBaby's hatefulness, by all means, be two myopic peas in a hotep pod but pls stop anticipating such undeserved grace for such disgusting and non-isolated behavior. Hypermasculinity begets homophobia. None of this is in a vacuum.” While another added, “@NickCannon should be canceled along with @DaBabyDaBaby. Nick thinking he’s an intellectual and DaBaby using the “I’m a product of my environment” for his ignorance. Many black men grew up in the same environment and aren’t stupid.” And, one concluded, “Nick Cannon you have 7 kids with 4 different women. Don’t worry about DaBaby and take care of your own babies.”
