EYE ROLLLLLLL. Rapper makes homophobic comments about gay men and HIV on stage.
It’s 2021 and yet here we are. Hold tight…
“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 p***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.”
To repeat, he (completely inaccurately) said… “HIV, Aids, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two, three weeks”
He also brought out Torey Lanez – who was accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot last year – on stage as part of his performance.
On social media, fans of Dua Lipa – who has a huge LGBT+ following – were calling for him to be removed from the song, saying things like: ‘I need Dua to IMMEDIATELY remove the Dababy remix of Levitating from streaming services and give us a Megan remix instead. It’s what we deserve!’
One user said: ‘Hoping somebody checks #DaBaby about his ignorance regarding HIV & STI’S. Ridiculing people about that is not cool at all’.
At one point someone threw a shoe at him on stage, to which he replied: “Who the fuck threw that motherf**king, busted ass, God-damn Adida?”, which quickly had the word “Adida” trending on Twitter.
It’s not known if the shoe was thrown over the HIV remarks, the homophobia, the blatant chauvinism, or the Megan shade. Take your pick.
1 shoe = adida— #JalenGreenToHouston 🏁 (@DDxGUILL) July 26, 2021
2 shoes = adidas https://t.co/hgvcOW1ES8
Dababy brought out T*ry L*nez to his performance and went on a homophobic rant last night? He’s dunzo— goldilox (@_joesas) July 26, 2021
I'm not a fan of cancel culture but its time for the industry to let go of DaBaby. His comments specifically targeted people living with HIV, AIDS, women, and gay men, unprovoked. Not only was it ignorant as hell, offensive but sir, what the hell is wrong with you? He has to go.— Tevon A. Blair, M.A. (@TevonBlair) July 26, 2021

DaBaby doing homophobic diatribes about people spreading HIV/AIDS while at a show with a MASSIVE crowd while a pandemic that is wreaking havoc is going on is a really something. I mean if you want to talk about superspreaders….— The Light Skin Benita Butrell (@TrapThumbelina) July 26, 2021
