On August 1, DaBaby’s Lollapalooza gig was cancelled due to the rapper’s comments during Rolling Loud. Some people felt his speech was homophobic and DaBaby has since apologised for his remarks on Instagram.

DaBaby’s Rolling Loud performance made the headlines after the rapper brought Tory Lanez on stage. Tory, who had been in the news for his controversial relationship with Megan Thee Stallion, failed to impress the audience. During his performance, DaBaby had a few words to say to his listeners. However, he soon received backlash for the same.

DaBaby’s Rolling Loud comments get him ‘cancelled’

On July 25, DaBaby performed at the Rolling Loud Festival, but his remarks at the end of his performance caught many people’s attention.

The rapper 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. 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.” 

Shortly after this, the rapper was slammed by people on Twitter. This also pushed many to jump on the bandwagon of cancel culture.

One user wrote: “Dababy & Tory Lanez can be cancelled to hell and back but until the cis-hetero-male dudes stop listening to them, there will never be actual growth.”

Another added: “Ewww the DaBaby can be cancelled now. Thank you.”

A number of celebrities have weighed in the cancellation of DaBaby, with the latest one being Miley Cyrus.

She captioned her Instagram post: “DaBaby check your DMS – would love to talk and see how we can learn from each other and help be part of making a more just and understanding future!” 

The actual post said: “As a proud and loyal member of the LGBTQIA+ community, much of my life has been dedicated to encouraging love, acceptance, and open-mindedness.

“It’s easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds. There’s no more room for division if we want to keep seeing progress! Knowledge is power! I know I still have so much to learn.”

Rapper apologises for the comments

DaBaby broke his silence following his cancellation on social media and apologised for the “hurtful and triggering comments” he made during Rolling Loud.

“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 wrote.

“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. 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.”
