Lil Nas X was tossed into the middle of DaBaby’s Rolling Loud Miami controversy after T.I. used him to justify the KIRK rapper’s perceived homophobic comments. Now, Lil Nas X has finally addressed the public uproar on Twitter.
On Wednesday (July 28), the Grammy Award-winning artist took his thoughts to Twitter and marveled at the fact his critics are seemingly upset he’s gay and successful.
“some of y’all not even mad that I’m gay, some of y’all mad that i’m gay and still succeeding.”
Slut Walk founder and model Amber Rose pointed out something similar shortly after T.I. weighed in on the situation.
“What in the homophobia???” she wrote in her Instagram Stories on Monday (July 26). “Y’all are so mad that @lilnasx is fucking winning! To be this homophobic feels like they are battling something internally. This is not equality this is hatred. Period.”
She added in a separate post, “I’m an activist first and foremost this is why I started my slutwalk for EVERYONE to come and feel comfortable in their own skin! This perpetuates hate and violence! I stand with the LGBTQ Community. We should all feel safe at a concert no matter what our status is, who we love or who we wanna give head to.”
He also lost the support of his “Levitating (Remix)” collaborator Dua Lipa who was “horrified” by his remarks.
DaBaby was a trending Twitter topic over the weekend after he said mid-performance, “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. Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone light in the air. “Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
The 29-year-old rapper has since issued an apology that read, “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.”
