DaBaby Responds to Backlash Over Homophobic Comments

DaBaby is lashing out at his critics in the wake of his controversial comments.

While on stage at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday, the Ball If I Want To rapper made a series of vile comments that were offensive to the LGBTQ+ community.

If you didnt show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually-transmitted diseases thatll make you die in two, three weeks, put a cell phone lighter up, DaBaby told the crowd. Fellas, if you aint suckin dick in the parking lot, put your cell phone lights up.

His DJ also added, Some of yall ni**as suspect as a motherfu**er, lets be real.

Now after the video went viral and sparked backlash, DaBaby is addressing what he calls weak ass internet shit. Taking to his Instagram Story, he explained that his live show is intended for those in the audience and not those watching online.

What I do at a live show, its for the audience at the live show, he said. It will never translate correctly to somebody looking at a little 5-6 second clip from they goddamn crib on their phone. It just dont work like that.

He claims that his words were twisted and that he doesnt discriminate against anyone who comes to his shows, gay or straight. All my fans at the show, the gay ones and the straight ones, we turned the f**k up, he added. My boy that was at the front of the stage left over there, ask him. We were turnt all night. My boy had the crop top on, front row. He out there in that jungle, in that water. He knew the words. I saw him. I was rappin them bitches with him.

He attempted to clarify his comments. I said if you dont got AIDS put a cell phone light up. I said if you aint suck d**k in the parking lot put your cell phone lights up, so I could drop my next song. I wasnt goin on no rant. Thats called a call-to-action. Thats what thats called, cause Im a live performer. Im the best live performer. Im the live show killer.

According to DaBaby, his fans dont have AIDS because theyre not nasty gays or junkies.

Even my gay fans, dont got f**kin AIDS, stupid ass ni**as. They dont got AIDS. My gay fans, they take care of themselves, he said. They aint goin for that. They aint no nasty gay ni**as. They aint no junkies. My gay fans, they got class. They aint suckin no d**k in no parking lot. You gotta get a room. A good one, 5-star hotel. You gotta wait to go to the crib. If they a fan of me, they on some big dog s**t. We aint just goin for nothin. Even my gay fans got standards.

He continued to dismiss the criticism. This s**t dont concern yall at all. Dont be disturbin my motherf**kin gay fans. You aint supposed to get it. It aint supposed to translate through a little 6-second clip on the cell phone. You aint supposed to see that s**t anyway.

T.I. came to DaBabys defense in the wake of the backlash, commenting, If Lil Nas X can kick his shit in peace so should dababy.

To add more fuel to the fire, DaBaby angered some fans by bringing out Tory Lanez during his Rolling Loud set, which followed Megan Thee Stallions performance.
