DaBaby Faces Backlash for Homophobic Comments Made During Rolling Loud Performance

The rapper DaBaby has come under fire for a slew of homophobic comments that discriminate against gay people and people living with HIV, made to a live audience during one of his performances. The rant hasn’t sat well with many on the internet, including the father of Lil Nas X.

"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," DaBaby said. "Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone light in the air. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up."

Following his outburst, while the likes of TI have defended DaBaby (and, while defending him, making pointed references to the musician Lil Nas X, who is gay), many others have condemned his words. "Bruh sit down you had your time,"​​​​​ Lil Nas X's father wrote on his Instagram Stories on top of a photo of the rapper with his son.
