DaBaby was scheduled to perform at Lollapalooza last weekend. Rapper “Suge” was in trouble after making homophonic comments on Rolling Loud a week earlier and had already been pulled from a festival. Billboard reports that DaBaby representatives reached out to seven fall festivals that signed him, along with Lolla, and promised to film an apology before taking the stage in Chicago.
DaBaby missed the deadline and his tweeted “apology” was the only one left. “I’m not tripping over all of you, am I? You are all businesses, ”DaBaby tweeted.
The video was never released and DaBaby proceeded to crash, prompting a number of schedule adjustments including Governors Bal, DAy N Vegas, iHeartRadio, ACL Fest, and more. DaBaby still has reservations for Hot 97 Summer Jam and an August show in Kansas.
“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ + community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made,” DaBaby said in a formal apology. “Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV / AIDS and I know that education is important. Love to all. God bless you “.
