More Music Festivals Drops DaBaby From Their Line-Ups In Wake Of Horrifying Backlash

The cancellations continue to roll in for DaBaby, who was dropped by several music festivals in response to the remarks about HIV/AIDS that he made during his Rolling Loud performance in Miami last month.


Austin City Limits, Music Midtown Festivals and iHeart Music Festival are the latest to announce DaBaby, has been axed from their line-up. Six music festivals to date have pulled the rapper from their roster, including New York's Governors Ball, the Day N Vegas, and Lollapalooza.


Lollapalooza announced the day for alleged murderer turned rapper was set to perform, that he would not be welcomed on their stage. That had to be horrifying for them in fear of him or other hoodlums retaliating.


DaBaby's appearance was reportedly contingent on a promised video apology video that never appeared, according to Billboard.


Sources tell Billboard that DaBaby's team promised several venues the "Masterpiece" rapper would issue a sincere apology to the LGBT community for the hurtful remarks he made, but when he missed the deadline, the venues went ahead and pulled the plug on his performances.


The 29-year-old rapper issued a lengthy apology on social media Monday, saying in part, "I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/Aids, and I know education on this is important."


DaBaby has twice apologized for the controversial statement he made on July 25, where he told the Rolling Loud crowd, "If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light in the air."


The remarks were widely considered homophobic.
