After the 29-year-old rapper made some homophobic comments during one of his shows, this particular brand decided to cut ties with him.
The fashion brand boohooMAN decided to cut ties with DaBaby after his homophobic comments during one of his latest shows.
"boohooMAN condemn the use of homophobic language and confirm we will no longer be working with DaBaby," the brand wrote in their official Instagram account, "Diversity and inclusion are part of the boohoo Groups DNA and we pride ourselves on representing the diverse customers we serve across the globe. We stand by and support the LGBTQ+ community, and do not tolerate any hate speech or discrimination in any form."
DaBaby, one of the most played rappers on Spotify and with more than 19 million followers on Instagram, made homophobic comments against women, the LGBTQ+ community and HIV+ people, saying something like, "If you didn't come in today with HIV, AIDS or any of those deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will have you dead in two to three weeks, then turn the flashlight on your phone up. Girls, if your vagina just smells like water, turn up the flashlight on your phones. Guys, if you're not sucking dick in the parking lot, turn up the flashlight on your phones."
His words were repudiated by many, including organizations and stars such as Dua Lipa. Now the 29-year-old rapper addressed the comments, "I tell fans to put a cellphone light in the air y’all start a million man March. I told you y’all digested that wrong but I ain’t gone lie I’m impressed. Now show this same amount of support when a racist cop kill one of our black ass…YA NOT."
He added that while anybody that might be affected by HIV or AIDS "got the right to be upset," and called his words "insensitive", but called out the members of the LGBT+ community... "I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business."
He also addressed brands, networks and other artists in that series of tweets, saying, "& for any brands, networks, or artists that like to profit off of black rappers influence on the culture, without understanding it or having the patience to deal with what comes with the position we play in our culture. Keep yo money next time us “NIGGAS” human too."
