The ‘Levitating’ singer took to Instagram to address the situation after many fans pressed her about removing her collaboration from the song’s remix.
“I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby’s comments. I really don’t recognize this as a person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGTBQ community,” she wrote on IG.
She continued, “We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS.”

As we reported, DaBaby is being slammed for his comments while on stage during the ‘Rolling Loud Festival’ where he addressed the crowd including a very homophobic message.“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light in the air. Ladies, if your p—y smell like water, put your cellphone light in the air,” he said.
Shockingly, he continued, “Fellas, if you ain’t suck a n—-’s d–k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lights in the air. Keep it f—ing real.”
Obviously, the statements outraged many concertgoers and others who watched the footage on social media. Fellow rapper T.I. caught heat for defending DaBaby’s actions and addressed the situation on social media.

Unfortunately, the rapper doubled down on his position, offering an “explanation” for his message. “I’m gonna address this weak-a– internet s–t one time, and then I’mma get back to giving my love to my fans, ’cause what me and my fans do at the live show, it don’t concern you n—as on the internet or you bitter b—hes on the internet,” he began.
DaBaby continued, “All the lights went up – gay or straight – you wanna know why?” Because even my gay fans don’t got f–king AIDS, stupid a– n—as. They don’t got AIDS. My gay fans, they take care of themselves. They ain’t no nasty gay n—as, see what I’m saying? They ain’t no junkies on the street.”
In the 5-minute IG video, DaBaby attempted to explain why his fans put their cell phones in the air anyways, saying, “my gay fans, they ain’t going for that. They got class, n—a. They ain’t sucking no d–k in no parking lot, n—a. You gotta get a room, a good one, five-star hotel, or wait ’til they go to the crib. … If they a fan of me, they going for some big dog s–t. We ain’t just going for nothing. Even my gay fans got standards!”
As you can imagine, the situation has sparked a HUGE debate online and has many of his fans and collaborators going public with their disgust for the messages.
