DaBaby Defends Homophobic Statements After Getting Dragged For Rolling Loud Efficiency (Video)
DaBaby is finding himself on the wrong end of a social media dragging today after a clip of some homophobic statements he made during his Rolling Loud performance went viral.
DaBaby’s performance Sunday night was already embroiled in controversy after he brought Tory Lanez out to perform amid Tory’s ongoing criminal case in connection to the Megan Thee Stallion shooting.
Fans once joked that Meg and DaBaby were work wife and husband, but that relationship has essentially been shattered following DaBaby and Tory’s collab.
But bringing Tory on stage was just the tip of the iceberg for Baby’s problems.
During his set, DaBaby made homophobic statement while introducing his next song. He made callouts to the crowd that specifically targeted the queer community and those living with HIV/AIDS.
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS…any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that make you die in 2, 3 weeks, put your cell phone light in the air,” DaBaby called out. “Fellas, if you ain’t sucking no d**k in the parking lot, put your cell phone light in the air.”
DaBaby’s comments immediately came under fire, with members of the queer community–including social media personality Ts Madison–calling him out.
Picking up on the backlash, DaBaby took to his Instagram story to address his statements in a 4-minute video.
Baby explained that his words were only meant for the crowd present to amp them up and added that even his gay fans participated in the call out because his gay fans “don’t got f***ing AIDS.”
