DaBaby is currently having a fight with cancel culture and has been removed from numerous music festivals across the country. If you ask Azealia Banks, the canceling is coming a bit too late and should have happened a while ago.
“Y’all should have BEEN canceled dababy when he was caught on camera punching a female fan in the face,” Banks wrote on Instagram. “I’m not believing any of this performative canceling ppl are doing now when everyone was so quick to forget that happened. Apology or not, keep him canceled.”
Back in the first quarter of 2020, DaBaby was at Whiskey North in Tampa, Florida when he was hit in the face by a woman who as recording him with her cell phone. DaBaby responded with a slap but claims that he could not tell it was a woman at the time.
“I do sincerely apologize,” DaBaby said online after the incident. “I do. I’m very sorry that there was a female on the other end of that flashlight on their phone… But you know, keep in mind, I couldn’t see you because you got the flash this close to me. Which is OK, it’s no problem… But fans—how many people know how to zoom in? Just zoom in instead of popping me in the motherfuckin’ eye with the phone. But I do apologize that there was a female on the other end… I think by this time, you know it’s a well known fact that male or female, I would’ve responded the same exact way.”
Do you agree with Banks?
