Miley Cyrus is not turning her back on DaBaby after he was removed from at least five music festival lineups following his homophobic remarks at Rolling Loud.
The “Slide Away” singer shared a message about forgiveness and urged the canceled rapper to respond to her invitation on Wednesday, August 4. She penned a sage-like note explaining that from ignorance comes with a chance to learn and grow. On top of that, she directed the caption at DaBaby’s official account. “@DaBaby check your DMS – would love to talk and see how we can learn from each other and help be part of making a more just and understanding future!” Miley wrote.
Cyrus posted white text against a black background as a picture on her feed to emphasize the importance of her words.
“As a proud and loyal member of the LGBTQIA+ community, much of my life has been dedicated to encouraging love, acceptance, and open mindedness,” she began her open letter.
“The internet can fuel a lot of hate & anger and is the nucleus of cancel culture… but I belive it can also be a place filled with education, coversation, communication & connection.”
Miley continued, “It’s easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds. There’s no more room for division if we want to keep seeing progress! Knowledge is power! I know I still have so much to learn!”

DaBaby Receives Invitation For Private Meeting With Eleven HIV/AIDS Organizations
Miley’s kind invitation comes on the same day that the rapper received a similar offer from eleven HIV/AIDS organizations. Their offer was specifically to educate DaBaby on the disease and felt the need to reach out after the Miami Rolling Loud comments. According to the letter obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, the group says they lead the fight to prevent HIV, especially in the LGBTQ and black communities in the United States.
“We heard your inaccurate and harmful comments at Rolling Loud and have read your Instagram apology. However, at a time when HIV continues to disproportionately impact Black Americans and queer and transgender people of color, a dialogue is critical. We must address the miseducation about HIV, expressed in your comments, and the impact it has on various communities.”
Miley Could Help
Miley is no stranger to controversy and has felt the internet’s warmth and wrath multiple times while growing up in the public eye. Perhaps the rapper will take the superstar’s words to heart, and she could usher him into education and back into the public’s good graces. Musicians like Elton John and his “Levitating” collaborator Dua Lipa public condemned DaBaby for his ignorant, misinformed comments.
