T.I. is getting hammered for supporting DaBaby including from some of his famous colleagues like Amber Rose and Sabrina Peterson, the woman suing him for sexual abuse.
The Atlanta rap legend thinks that DaBaby’s homophobic rant during his Rolling Loud festival performance is not that big of a deal. T.I. made the comments even as the young rapper faced serious backlash from fans and various media outlets.
There’s still been no word as to why DaBaby went on the strange rant that featured a lot of hateful speech towards the LGBTQ+ community and people with AIDS and HIV+ statuses. He spewed the vitriol during his performance on stage at Rolling Loud.
There’s been a strong reaction from some of his fans who have taken to social media to let others know that they’ve deleted his music from their libraries, while others have expressed their opinion against his rant.
T.I.’s take on the matter is that if Lil Nas X is allowed to represent the gay community in his videos and on social media, then DaBaby should be free to express his anti-gay opinion. Lil Nas X once again caused a stir for the imagery that he used in his latest video for his track, “Industry Baby,” which features strong images of gay men twerking.
The “Live Your Life” singer, who last year faced several allegations of rape, sexual assault, and drugging, explained his position on the issue while responding to a post on The Shade Room.
