DaBaby responds to Questlove’s criticism over homophobic comments


DaBaby has responded to Questlove calling him out for the homophobic comments he made while performing at Rolling Loud Miami. 

Taking to Instagram Stories, DaBaby shared a post in which Questlove scribbled out DaBaby’s name from his “dream list” of artists to perform at Summer of Soul and condemned the rapper for his rhetoric. Underneath, DaBaby wrote, “I ain’t even tryna be funny when i say …. i do NOT KNOW WHO DIS N**** IS DAWG.”

The “Masterpiece” rapper added, “& do not care about losing you as a fan my boy lol @questlove.”

DaBaby declared himself a “standup” guy and that others can’t influence people to stop being a fan of his because he is “the INFLUENCE.” He then suggested that the haters “hit the studio or [something].”

In a final slide, the 29-year-old accused “lame and burnt tf out” people of using the LGBT community to make a comeback. 

“The LGBT community don’t need ya’ll. Ya’ll need them,” he wrote. 

DaBaby has been on a downward spiral after making some controversial HIV/AIDS remarks while onstage at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami last weekend, declaring, “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.”

Since then, artists including Dua LipaDemi LovatoMadonna and Elton John have criticized DaBaby, while others like T.I. and Boosie have come to DaBaby’s defense.
