DaBaby expresses deep sorry for the harm that was caused trough his comments at the Rolling Loud performance as fans react online.

DaBaby homophobic comments has turned out to be a financial disaster for the Charlotte hip hop artist. The artist has received much more negative reaction than positive approval of his comments which has caused DaBaby to finally make an apology for his rant. He tried to double down, but it only increased more drama that now the apology was only in due time to help the public relations nightmare of his commentary at Rolling Loud.

He has been taken off various festival lineups, including Governor’s Ball New York, Lollapalooza, and even Day N Vegas. These are some pretty significant ramifications, and now, DaBaby is taking responsibility with a lengthy apology on Instagram.

“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,” DaBaby wrote. “As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publically working against me— knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance— has been challenging. I appreciate the many people who came to me with kindness, who reached out to me privately to offer wisdom, education, and resources. That’s what I needed and it was received. 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.”

It seems DaBaby’s apology is coming from a good place and is sincere. However, time will tell about the sincerity of the statement. Regardless, at this moment he has taken responsibility for the past comments against the LGBTQ+ community.

The apology did not stop further cancellations of the rapper at live events by promoters. Day N Vegas has effectively dropped DaBaby from its stacked lineup of artists, which features the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Tyler, the Creator, Lil Uzi Vert, SZA, Doja Cat, Lil Baby, Polo G, and several others. The festival also revealed that it has successfully booked Roddy Ricch, so the Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial artist will take DaBaby’s place.

Popular media personality Akademiks issued a few thoughts on the situation on his official Twitter account where he called out the hypocrisy of the entertainment business.

“I fw Da Baby.. at this point though I don’t think its about his comments (him and others in hip hop have said worse things.. not justifying them)… however I think this is one of them last stands for cancel culture,” writes Ak. “He apologized but basically acted like he was 2 big to cancel.

“The moment Da Baby said he was the ‘influence’ like.. that can’t be taken from you or your livelihood can’t be affected by others,” he continues. “I knew they were finna have a hard on for him… can’t be arrogant and pompous when that cancel train come for u.. even if u think its overblown. Every festival finna try to look good by taking him off their lineup.. until he comes back begging and pleading. Thats what cancel culture is these days.. its more bout bringing entertainers 2 their knees begging back for acceptance rather than letting u learn from ur mistake.”
