DaBaby has been dropped form Lollapalooza following his homophobic remarks just days ago.

Lollapalooza confirmed the news in a statement in which they claimed to champion 'diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love'.

In a tweet, the festival said:

Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight. Young Thug will now perform at 9:00pm on the Bud Light Seltzer Stage, and G Herbo will perform at 4:00pm on the T-Mobile Stage.

DaBaby's removal from the festival is a result of comments made just a few days ago at Rolling Land Miami.



Addressing the crowd, DaBaby said:

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. Fellas, if you ain't sucking d*ck in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!

Following the remarks numerous artists and fans alike turned on DaBaby, including Dua Lipa who collaborated with DaBaby on her remix of the Future Nostalgia song "Levitating."

In an Instagram story, Dua Lipa wrote:

I'm surprised and horrified at DaBaby's comments. I really don't recognise this as the person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS.



Another artist who commented was Elton John who accused DaBaby of spreading HIV mistruths and said that his comments 'fuel stigma and discrimination which is the opposite of what our world needs to fight the AIDS epidemic'.

Demi Lovato and Madonna also shared Instagram posts slamming DaBaby's comments.

On Wednesday, DaBaby released a new single, "Giving What It's Supposed To Give". The single's video included two references to his comments.

At one point in the video, the rapper holds up a sign that says "AIDS." The video then ends with a message spelled out in rainbow lettering: "Don't Fight Hate With Hate." It continues: "My apologies for being me the same way you want the freedom to be you."




DaBaby also apologised for his comments on Twitter, writing:

I tell fans to put a cellphone light in the air y'all start a million man March. I told you y'all digested that wrongbut I ain't gone lie I'm impressed. Now show this same amount of support when a racist cop kill one of our black ass…YA NOT. Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y'all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies But the LGBT community... I ain't trippin on y'all, do you. y'all business is y'all business.

That's that.
