MIAMI, FL — Infantile rapper DaBaby shocked and angered the music world when he made disgustingly homophobic remarks during his set at the Rolling Loud music festival in Miami this past Sunday.
The comments, which we will not reprint here as we have some goddamn integrity, reinforce negative and scientifically incorrect associations between homosexuality and HIV/AIDS.
Following the backlash, DaBaby went live on Instagram, where he clarified that he supports the gay people who buy his albums.
“My gay fans ain’t going for that. They got class,” the rapper said.
Though fans and musicians have been almost universal in their condemnation of DaBaby’s comments, fellow rapper T.I. decided to throw his opinion into the mix for some reason and defend DaBaby, because of course he did.
“If you gonna have the Lil Nas X video and him living his truth, you gonna damn sure have people like DaBaby who gonna speak their truth,” T.I. wrote on Instagram, appearing to compare DaBaby’s homophobic references of AIDS and gay sex to rapper, singer, and America’s sweetheart Lil Nas X being unashamed and open about his sexuality.
T.I. bravely added a heartfelt “#equality” to close out another comment and make it clear that he is only interested in fair and equitable treatment of DaBaby, not in simply making a dumbass statement.
Formerly known as the “Rubber Band Man,” T.I. has since become known as the “Strange Man Who Inspects His Daughter’s Hymen” after he announced that he takes his 18-year-old daughter for an annual checkup to make sure that she’s still a virgin, making him an appropriate supporter and associate of DaBaby.
As sponsors, venues, and fans continue to drop DaBaby, the rapper may be going from bussin’ to bust.
