After weeks of being slammed on social media and blacklisted at several festivals and events, DaBaby has issued a formal apology to the LGBTQ community following the tidal wave of backlash he received after his incendiary comments made at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.
DaBaby made a statement today(August 2) rescinding all of his past comments, saying, “I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important. Love to all. God bless.”
The Charlotte, NC native also cops that he is a victim of the high pace of social media, adding, “Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate, and learn from your mistakes. As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me — knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance — has been challenging.”
DaBaby also thanked the people who supported him “with kindness, who reached out to me privately to offer wisdom, education, and resources. That’s what I needed and it was received.”
