The reaction against DaBaby has continued after the rapper came to Twitter earlier this week to elaborate on his infamous Rolling Loud Miami incident.
You may have read one or more articles about DaBaby telling the live audience that if they don’t have HIV/AIDS or “any of those deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll kill you in two to three weeks,” as well as men who aren’t “sucking d*ck in the parking lot,” they should put their cellphone lights in the air.
The comments seemed strange at first, but when the video went viral, DaBaby was accused of homophobia and propagating antiquated beliefs about HIV/AIDS stigmas.
Dua Lipa, who collaborated with DaBaby on the remix to her track “Levitating” last year, came out against his statements before apologising to anybody impacted by the infections.
The singer described the North Carolina rapper’s statements as “horrifying,” and fans quickly demanded that Dua Lipa remove DaBaby from the song.
Many fans demanded that DaBaby be replaced with an LGBTQIA+ musician, and Victoria Monét responded by offering her services if required.
“If she wants to substitute DaBaby’s levitating verse, I’m completely available,” the singer added.
People began urging Dua Lipa to dump the rapper in favour of Monét or even Megan Thee Stallion on social media.
However, it does not appear that there are any plans to make significant adjustments as a result of the issue.
DaBaby has since apologised for his comments and offered an explanation of his outburst.
