After DaBaby was roundly criticized for his homophobic comments onstage at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday night, GLAAD has released a response, calling the rapper’s remarks “inaccurate, hurtful, and harmful” to the LGBTQ community and those living with HIV.
During his set at Rolling Loud’s closing night, DaBaby told the crowd, “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up! Ladies, if your p—y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up! Fellas, if you ain’t sucking di– in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!”
DaShawn Usher, GLAAD’s associate director of communities of color, responded to DaBaby’s comments on Wednesday (July 28), urging that he take full accountability for his words and work to do better.
