Rapper Sada Baby was a huge target of Cancel Culture last year after screenshots of older tweets from the rapper were released online, causing an uproar.
The controversy seemingly began after the rapper was asked by a Nicki Minaj fan page to promote the remix to his viral hit that featured Nicki Minaj. Sada Baby didn’t give a positive response to the request, leading to the members of the fan page looking through his old tweets. They discovered colorist and homophobic statements as well as tweets about sexual assault and released them online.
While initially, the rapper didn’t care about the controversy, he ultimately issued a public apology with a video. While recently being interviewed by No Jumper, Sada Baby talked about being a target of Nicki Minaj’s fan base. He compared the fanbase to a ‘cult.’
“I had to apologize and all that type of sh*t,” he said. “The crazy thing is, what I said is sh*t that I probably said, like, five times earlier that week. I think there was so much going on and her fanbase is like a cult. They like the BeeHive.”
“They went and found old ass tweets. I’m like, damn, I said that?” He was told that he should’ve pulled a preemptive strike and deleted his old messages. “I don’t use my Twitter,” Sada replied. “The label be on my Twitter, so like—but the sh*t that they found, at the time, I’m like, yeah. But I was young though… I think at one point in time on Twitter that was the thing to do at like, four o’clock in the morning,” he added. “It’s like competition to say the worst sh*t.”
Cancel culture is certainly a regular occurrence nowadays on social media and it could happen to anyone, even if the person in question has changed a lot.
