After a lot of chaos has been created on the internet, Rapper DaBaby has issues an apology!

The musician apologized for the comments he made about HIV-positive people on stage at a US music event.

Apology Tweet

DaBaby took to Twitter and wrote last night that his comments were “insensitive”. He also said that he “had no intention of offending anyone” before formally apologizing.

“Anyone who has ever [been] affected by AIDS / HIV y’all have a right to be upset,” he said.

Dua Lipa also reacted to DaBaby’s insensitive comments earlier today. She revealed thatl she was “surprised and shocked” by the remarks.

DaBaby also spoke to the LGBT community in his tweet saying “I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”

What Is The Controversy About?

While the rapper was performing at the Rolling Loud event in Miami during the weekend, he called on all members of the audience to “turn on your cell phone flashes”, except for those with HIV or gay men who have sex in car parks.

He also falsely claimed that HIV “would make you die in two or three weeks”.

This was offending to the victims and goes in stark contrast to science that has made medications available which allow HIV positive people to have a long and healthy life.

DaBaby’s Justification

However, before he apologized DaBaby trued to justify his comments in an Instagram story posted on Sunday. In it he said: “What I do at the live show is for the audience at the live show. It would never translate correctly to someone looking a little five/six second clip.”

About half an hour before his apology in the tweet, the rapper angered fans by appearing and defending his words.

“I tell fans to put a cellphone light in the air y’all start a million man March,” he wrote on Twitter.

He suggested that the “same amount of support” isn’t shown when a black person is killed by a police officer.
