DaBaby is still feeling the aftermath of his Rolling Loud rant from last weekend as another event promoter has pulled the artist from their lineup.

Lollapalooza has dropped DaBaby from its Sunday lineup after the rapper has come under fire for homophobic remarks he made during his set at another music festival last weekend.

Lollapalooza’s official Twitter account posted Sunday morning that the long-running festival, taking place this weekend in Chicago, “was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight.”

As part of the change, the festival said Young Thug would perform at 9 p.m. on the Bud Light Seltzer Stage, and G Herbo will perform at 4 p.m. on the T-Mobile Stage.

At the Rolling Loud festival in Miami on Sunday, July 25, DaBaby asked fans to shine their cellphone flashlights if they “didn’t show up today with HIV/AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will make you die in two to three weeks.”
