In 2021, DaBaby commented on the LGBTQ community, seemingly going on a homophobic rant while on the Rolling Loud Festival stage. The rapper said, “Ladies if your p***y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.” The comments led to the rapper facing backlash and being dropped from numerous festivals. Now, DaBaby has reflected on the controversy long with his comments.
DaBaby appeared on ‘The Shop Uninterrupted’ and was asked if he would change how things went during his comments. The rapper immediately said, “Absolutely. That’s what came out my own mouth and said as of late, not even as of late, I would maybe handled it the way he handled it.”
Ultimately, the rapper noted he should have handled the situation differently but didn’t condemn his comments. He continued, “I apologized, but I didn’t mean to apologize because I’m this type of person. I’m gonna fight to the tooth and nail, like if I, you know what I mean? My character and my intentions – that’s something I am never going to let you make me out, I’m not a bad person. I’m unfaltering on that.” Watch above at the 34:00 mark.
