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.

Let’s get to know each other. Me? Well, I have a master’s degree in Journalism from Marshall University, but I don’t really like to talk about that. I was a stand-up comedian for eight years, but I don’t really like to talk about that either. I write a lot. I once worked for a company that writes blurbs for online gambling games. Those paid $.75 each. So, if you frequent that kind of thing, then you’re welcome for the description for Biker Chicken Slots or Crazy Granny’s Scratchers. I wish I had more to tell, but due to my crippling anxiety and Tourette’s Syndrome, that has become increasingly worse over the years, I tend to keep to myself.
