On Sunday (25 July) DaBaby said some homophobic comments while addressing the crowd during his Rolling Loud Miami performance, telling attendees without HIV or AIDS to "put your cellphone light up."

After Dua Lipa responded yesterday (27 July) saying she's "surprised and horrified" at the "Levitating" collaborator's comments, DaBaby issued his own apology (sort of).

This afternoon Elton John, who established the Elton John AIDS Foundation in 1992 following the death of Indiana teenager Ryan White, has replied to the rapper's comments on Twitter, writing, "We've been shocked to read about the HIV misinformation and homophobic statements made at a recent DaBaby show. This fuels stigma and discrimination and is the opposite of what our world needs to fight the AIDS epidemic."

After listing multiple facts about HIV, in his final tweet he added, "Homophobic and HIV mistruths have no place in our society and industry and as musicians, we must spread compassion and love for the most marginalised people in our communities. A musician’s job is to bring people together."

Earlier today (28 July), fashion company boohooMAN cut ties with DaBaby due to his comments.
