DaBaby is still pretty much in the hot seat after making some ridiculously offensive comments about the LGBTQI+ community during his Rolling Loud Miami set earlier this summer. In case you missed it, here is what was sad.
"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 told attendees. "Ladies, if your p---- smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d--- in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up."
Even after being slammed on social media, the controversial rapper took to social media to double down on his remarks. It wasn't until his actions began to have a direct impact on his earnings, that his team decided it was time to apologize.
In June, BoohooMan released a 100-piece capsule collection with DaBaby, but cut ties with the rapper immediately after his comments went viral. Following that, the hosts of festival line-up removals: Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, iHeartRadio Music Festival, Austin City Limits, and Day n Vegas, all removed the loud-spoken artist, leaving Hot 97's Summer Jam as the only main show left for the year.
One of the only people to come to his defense is New Orleans rapper Lil Boosie. Lil Boosie also has a history of making homophobic comments. One way to show support for DaBaby was to include him in his oneway lineup. Twitter responded accordingly. Check it out.
So Da Baby is performing at Lil Boosie’s party. Birds of a feather are homophobic together.— (Le)Troy (@mrLdavis) August 18, 2021
Side note. Imagine going from performing for thousands at Rolling Loud, to performing in Boosie back yard in less than a month.
