Rapper DaBaby apologizes for homophobic remarks

DaBaby has apologized for the homophobic comments he made at a concert last week after several festivals removed him from their posters. The American rapper apologized in part on Twitter last week — a move that has been criticized by some as a sign of the news.

During a show at a Miami festival, 29-year-old DaBaby asked all attendees to turn on the light of their cellphones except gay people “having sex in parking garages” or those who are HIV positive. He also claimed that people with HIV “die within two or three weeks.” The rapper previously said he thought the fuss was overblown, but acknowledged afterwards that what he said was “insensitive.”

He finds it difficult that people he knows also responded online, but is glad that he also received other messages. “I appreciate the people who have shared their wisdom, knowledge and resources with me in a nice way. That’s what I needed and it came in.”
