DaBaby is a popular rapper in the Hip-Hop world right now, but he is also known to take things too far and is also a subject of controversy. He managed to make headlines for all the wrong reasons recently as well.
During his performance at Rolling Loud in Miami, DaBaby caused quite a stir after making a controversial and homophobic statement. This led to fans being irate and bashing him on social media.
All of this has led to him being cancelled by fans and events alike. On top of that, he was previously dropped from the upcoming Lollapalooza lineup. To add to his woes, he was removed from the Governor’s Ball as well.
DaBaby had previously posted a half-hearted apology for his harmful and insensitive remarks as he took to Instagram, but then he would go on to delete the post. Due to this, he was subject to even more backlash from fans, who simply had no interest in forgiving him.
While speaking to The Breakfast Club, Nick Cannon addressed the current controversy regarding DaBaby and him getting cancelled for his controversial remarks. Cannon stated that fans should embrace DaBaby for the betterment of the mentality in the Hip-Hop community.
“First of all, I think not only in the Black community—and I’ve experienced it—but definitely just men a lot of times, we have that ego. We believe apologizing is weakness when it actually, takes great strength to step up to anyone and say, ‘.i was wrong’ I know Baby. And that’s a strong brother…. That man just lost his pops, his brother, all the things that he… and still to have that big smile that he has every day, knowing everything.
To say ‘I’m sorry,’ that’s a self-proclamation. To apologize is an action. Let’s use this as an opportunity for education. Because that’s what happened in my scenario.
This is a moment where we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him because if we can do that, watch how many mentalities will change in the Hip Hop community.
DaBaby is likely feeling remorseful after his homophobic comments at the Rolling Loud show in Miami. It seems Miley Cyrus certainly has her work cut out for her if she truly will try to help DaBaby get better.
