The 29-year-old rapper who was supposed to perform during the fourth day of the festival was dropped due to his homophobic and sexist comments.
DaBaby's homophobic and sexist comments continue to have repercussions on the rapper's musical career. After the 29-year-old artist made a homophobic rant against people living with HIV and AIDS during one of his latest performances at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, he was dropped by a fashion brand, received a response from several artists such as Dua Lipa, Brazilian singer Anitta and Madonna, and now he was dropped by the Lollapalooza the same day he was going to perform at the festival in Chicago.
"Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight," the festival announced on its social media accounts. Instead, Young Thug performed at 9:00pm on the Bud Light Seltzer Stage, and G Herbo performed at 4:00pm on the T-Mobile Stage.
During one of his latest shows, the rapper made several anti-gay comments, also addressing people living with HIV and AIDS saying, "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" fueling the stigma and discrimination people living with this sexually transmitted diseases already have to deal with.
And while he tried to apologize during his latest music video for the song "Giving What It's Supposed To Give, with the message "Don’t Fight Hate With Hate. My apologies for being me the same way you want the freedom to be you," many thought that he was really trying to play the victim of the whole situation.
