DaBaby Apologizes for Insensitive AIDS Comments

DaBaby is offering up an apology of sorts.

Amid the fallout from his homophobic rant at Rolling Loud Miami, the rapper is addressing the offensive diatribe, claiming that he was surprised by the backlash.

I tell fans to put a cellphone light in the air yall start a million man March, he tweeted on Tuesday. I told you yall digested that wrong but I aint gone lie Im impressed. Now show this same amount of support when a racist cop kill one of our black assYA NOT.

He went on to apologize for his insensitive remarks about those with AIDS/HIV.

Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV yall got the right to be upset, he added. What I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies.

However, he stopped short of apologizing to the LGBTQ+ community as a whole. But the LGBT community I aint trippin on yall, do you. yall business is yall business, he added.

Not only has social media called for his cancelation, but his peers are calling him out including his Levitating collaborator Dua Lipa.

Im surprised and horrified at DaBabys comments, the pop star wrote on her Instagram Story. I really dont recognize this as the person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGTBQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS.

Fashion brand boohooMAN, for which DaBaby is a partner, has also condemned his comments and is reviewing its relationship with him. Diversity and inclusion are part of our core values and we pride ourselves on representing the diverse customers we serve across the globe, the brand said in a statement to TMZ.

DaBaby also had a message for the brands, networks, or artists that like to profit off of black rappers, adding, Keep yo money next time us NI**AS human too.
