On August 2, he apologized for his insensitive comments.
“Social media moves so fast that people want to destroy you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate yourself and learn from your mistakes,” the 29-year-old rapper wrote on Instagram. “As a man who had to go his own way out of very difficult circumstances, it was a challenge to have people I know working against me publicly – knowing that I needed education and guidance on these issues – was a challenge . “
He continued, “I appreciate the many people who came to me with kindness, who came to me privately for wisdom, education and resources. I needed that and it was accepted.”
DaBaby then apologized for “the hurtful and offensive comments” he made about the LGBTQ + community and those living with HIV / AIDS.
“I apologize again for my misinformed comments about HIV / AIDS, and I know it is important to be educated about it,” he concluded. “Love to everyone. God bless. -DaBaby.”
