DaBaby sparked outrage at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami last weekend, when made hateful comments about the LGBTQ community and those with HIV/AIDS. Massive backlash followed, including from artists like Madonna, Dua Lipa and Elton John.
He apologized on Tuesday after massive backlash, tweeting, “Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies 🙏🏾.”
“But the LGBT community… I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you,” he added. “Y’all business is y’all business.”
