DaBaby was dropped from Lollapalooza’s lineup Sunday over homophobic remarks made during another music festival last week. Organizers cited that the festival was “founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect and love,” and said the rapper “will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight.” Instead, Young Thug played at 9 p.m. and G Herbo performed at 4 p.m.
DaBaby has faced backlash over the last week following controversial remarks he made during his set at the Rolling Loud music festival. Video of the remarks, which included comments on HIV and gay men, has been circulating on social media since. The rapper himself addressed the controversy on Twitter, saying “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 wrong but I ain’t gone lie I’m impressed.” He then apologized in another tweet saying, “Anybody who done ever been affected 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.”
