Rapper T.I is giving his two cents on DaBaby’s viral homophobic comments, which were made while he was on stage at Rolling Loud Miami on Sunday.
After DaBaby’s comment sparked a backlash on social media, T.I in his defence, while referencing Lil Nas X who is openly gay, wrote, “If Lil Nas X can kick in peace… so should dababy #equality”. T.I during an Instagram live also insisted that he is not homophobic, “Ain’t nothing in the world gon’ make me hate somebody cause they do something different in the bedroom than I do”.
While on stage Sunday, Dababy said, “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, then put your cellphone lighter up, Ladies, if you smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t doing anything in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up”.
Soon after he said this, persons on social media started to accuse the raper of homophobia, anti-HIV rhetoric, and misogyny.
