HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ Advocates Says DaBaby Hasn't Kept Any Of His Promises, Return To Rolling Loud Is

  

OOP! HIV and LGBTQ advocates are still unhappy with DaBaby and say his upcoming Rolling Loud performance is a "slap in the face."

To give a recap, DaBaby hit the stage at Rolling Loud Miami in July 2021. While performing, the Charolette native said some offensive and homophobic comments about people living with HIV/AIDS.

"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 said to the audience.

DaBaby received backlash for his remarks and quickly did damage control. The rapper released multiple apologies and met with LGBTQ media advocacy group GLAAD and eight HIV advocacy groups. According to the groups, DaBaby promised to donate, bring awareness to the disease, and collaborate with the organizations to offer testings at his concerts.

However, the organizations say they were shocked to know DaBaby hasn't followed up with his commitments.

"It feels as though the meeting and taking time to meet with us was all just smoke and mirrors. None of the things that he talked about doing or following through with have come to fruition," says the Prevention Access Campaign, Deondre B. Moore.

The organizations also add that they were blindsided by Rolling Loud, allowing DaBaby to perform once again.

"For us, it's kind of a slap in the face," Moore continued. "To see them still being able to support and push him up to be on the same stage where he made such horrible comments and degrading comments for people living with HIV."

In addition to not receiving any donations, Moore also adds that DaBaby agreed to have STD screenings at his shows, but "none of that has happened as well."
