On Tuesday, the 25-year-old singer finally responded to fans calling her out for being silent about his negative comments about the LGBTQ+ community which she claims to support.
Dua wrote on her Instagram story, "I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby‘s comments. I really don’t recognize this as the person I worked with."
Fans have been calling for Dua to remove her remix of her hit "Levitating" which DaBaby had a verse on. Her new statement does not really address fans' pleas for her to stop allowing the homophobic rapper to profit off the track.
Dua's comments come days after DaBaby went off during his set at Rolling Loud in Miami this weekend. He told the crowd, “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up.”
He proceed to tell the audience, “Ladies, if your pu--y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking di*k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
DaBaby immediately caught heat for his ignorant comments about people who live with HIV/AIDS, especially since medicine allows individuals with HIV/AIDS to live long normal lives.
Despite being called out for his remarks, DaBaby decided to double down on his ignorance. He took to Instagram Live to continue ranting about people with HIV.
He said, "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 added.
DaBaby's record label has refused to address on the matter.
