Over 150,000 tweets have poured in on Twitter regarding DaBaby’s latest apology to the LGBTQ community — and they aren’t pretty.
After firing off several comments perceived to be homophobic and sexist during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami on July 25, the Billboard chart topper has been dragged from Los Angeles to Charlotte, North Carolina. He’s also been cut from several festival lineups, including Lollapalooza 2021, the Governor’s Ball and Day N Vegas.
On Monday (August 2), DaBaby issued another Instagram apology, which clearly didn’t go over well on social media.
“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made,” he wrote in part. “Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important.”
That’s all it took for the “DaApology” jokes to fly on Twitter.
Check out some of the reactions below.

DaBaby is a multi-millionaire who can afford image consultants, PR reps, and crisis management professionals.
No, it was never the job of LGBTQIA people to "educate" him for free.
We are too busy fighting to survive in a world where his uneducated hate is costing us our lives.

So many defenses of DaBaby are like, “He grew up poor and black in the hood, how did you expect him to develop EMPATHY and CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS”

DaBaby needs to fire DaPr team this is a terrible apology and he needs to cut the aids lyric from the song and video at a MINIMUM. I hope you keeps losing DaBookings cause DaApology isn’t giving what it’s supposed to give Johnathan. https://t.co/lDhBY46FLj
