DaBaby apologizes for his ‘triggering’ homophobic rant at Rolling Loud – and tries to blame social media


DABABY has apologized for his homophobic comments after being ditched from three festivals following his onstage rant at Rolling Loud last week.

The 29-year-old rapper released a lengthy statement on Monday in which he acknowledged that the anti-gay tirade was “hurtful and misinformed” but attempted to blame the backlash on social media.

“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made,” he said in the statement posted to Instagram.

“Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important. Love to all. God bless.”

It came just hours after Governors Ball became the third festival to pull him from its line-up.

“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.,” he added.

“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.”
