Rapper DaBaby‘s PR team is certainly never out of a job. The 30-year-old, born Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, recently came under fire for allegedly trying to force a fan to kiss him even after she resisted. The social media backlash was unsurprisingly brutal when the clip of the incident went viral.
The rapper responded to the clip after much backlash, but it wasn’t the expected apology. According to DaBaby, the entire thing was false. He even went as far as calling it “cap a– sh-t” and posted another clip of him and another enthusiastic fan arm in arm.
DaBaby Tried Kissing A Resisting Fan
A recent video surfaced online of DaBaby struggling to kiss an uninterested fan. In the video, the 30-year-old approached some fans outside a venue and even hugged some. However, he decided to take a step further for a certain fan.

DaBaby was seen grabbing the woman’s head and pulling it towards his in an attempt to lock lips. This happened at least twice before the rapper registered the fan’s disinterest. The video clip cut off just after the North Carolina rapper stumbled. The footage was reportedly taken in February but recently went viral.
The North Carolina rapper took to his Instagram stories to repost the video on Thursday. His caption read, “Y’all Go head on man,” with a laughing emoji. DaBaby included, “Me & my booboos love each other to death but ain’t no kissin goin on.”
Fans’ Reactions To Video Clip
Due to how the clip seemed to watchers, DaBaby unsurprisingly came under fire. Last year, he was criticized after making some homophobic comments in Miami at the Rolling Loud Music Festival.
TikToker @mariejean.tv posted the video of DaBaby and captioned it saying, “Bruhhhhhhhh you can have all the money and fame in the world but if you a fuq up individual nobody wants any parts of you. Please don’t be a da baby because immediately NO!”
One TikToker commented, “He can’t believe she rejected him!! The entitlement.” Another wrote, “He’s out of control ALL THE TIME.” “Like why he acting like that?” a former fan wrote, “Reason 729 why I stopped listening to him, he thinks he can get whatever and he can not!”
The video clip was also posted on Twitter and received a response that wasn’t any better. Several users described the video as “terrifying” and obvious “harassment.” They also claimed that most were downplaying the video.

While the rapper previously posted the video himself, he had more to say when it got viral. According to a recent Instagram stories update, DaBaby denied that he tried kissing the fan, referring to the entire situation as “cap a** s**t.”
He posted some Instagram stories on Thursday, one of which was the controversial video. The 30-year-old captioned it, “Who be making this cap ass s**t up bruh???” Another update directed his fans to a previous post he made concerning the issue.
In a follow-up post, the rapper showed a clip of him with an enthusiastic fan on the same day. DaBaby also hopped on the Shade Room after the Instagram news blog posted the video. He wrote, “bae was upset that I blew a kiss at her lil buddy first.”
DaBaby Is Known For Close Interaction With Fans
This isn’t the first time the “Blame it on Baby” artist is getting in the tabloids due to a fan-related incident. In January this year, DaBaby reportedly welcomed a fan onstage to grind on him during a Boston concert.
The rapper was on a bed on the stage when the enthusiastic fan jumped on him. This happened in front of the several hundred fans that dotted the House of Blues. An equally enthusiastic DaBaby grabbed her bottom, while money fell on them.
The 30-year-old shared a clip of the incident on Instagram. The caption said, “Had to wait on the kids to go to bed to post this one. I love you girl. Just like I told you in person. You and every other fan that don’t give a f–k just like me. WE THEM ONES! The world gone adapt when they ready.”
