DaBaby lost spot at Lollapalooza and The Governor’s Ball due to controversial statements he made at Rolling Loud. Those homophobic and sexist remarks also painted HIV/AIDS in a very negative light to further a false stigma. Now DaBaby is paying for it in a big way.
The controversial rapper will no longer be performing at Day N Vegas. He was replaced by Roddy Ricch on the show.
DaBaby previously dropped an apology to social media where he said that he was “demolished” by social media before he had a chance to learn from his mistakes.
“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 in a statement to his 19.2 million followers on Instagram. “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.”
That apology didn’t seem to matter in this case. The Day N Vegas festival will not see DaBaby on the lineup. Friday night is headlined by Kendrick Lamar with Tyler, The Creator taking the main stage on Saturday. DaBaby will no nowhere in sight.
