It's hard to imagine DaBaby could possibly say anything more shocking than the disgusting homophobic remarks he made at Rolling Loud, but he found a way.
"I'm gonna address this weak-ass internet s--t one time, and then I'mma get back to giving my love to my fans, 'cause what me and my fans do at the live show, it don't concern you n---as on the internet or you bitter bitches on the internet," the 29-year-old rapper began a 4-and-a-half-minute Instagram Story video, explaining his on-stage comments about the those living with HIV or AIDS.
The musician said his performance during the Miami, Florida, music festival was meant for paying concertgoers only and that clips of his comments were taken out of context. He then went on to repeat exactly what he said that caused the initial commotion.
"I said, 'If you don't got AIDS, put a cellphone lighter up,'" he told his 19.1 million followers. "I said, 'If you ain't suck d--k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lights up.'"
DaBaby explained that he felt the situation was more of a "call to action" than a "rant."
"All the lights went up – gay or straight – you wanna know why?" he continued. "Because even my gay fans don't got f--king AIDS, stupid ass n---as. They don't got AIDS. My gay fans, they take care of themselves. They ain't no nasty gay n---as, see what I'm saying? They ain't no junkies on the street."

"I even said, 'If you don't suck d--k in the Rolling Loud parking lot, put your cellphone lighters up.' You know what my gay fans did? Put that motherf--king light up, n---a," he went on. "'Cause my gay fans, they ain't going for that. They got class, n---a. They ain't sucking no d--k in no parking lot, n---a. You gotta get a room, a good one, five-star hotel, or wait 'til they go to the crib. ... If they a fan of me, they going for some big dog s--t. We ain't just going for nothing. Even my gay fans got standards!"
In a bizarre attempt to perhaps justify his remarks, DaBaby made sure to note that there was a man in the front row of his show who was wearing a crop top and mouthing all the lyrics to all his songs.
During the controversial performance, which took place over the weekend, the rapper managed to offend women, too.
"Ladies, if your p---y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up," he shouted at the large crowd.
He then brought out fellow rapper Tory Lanez, who is still facing criminal charges for allegedly shooting Megan Thee Stallion in the foot.
Meg had just performed her set before DaBaby took the stage.
