Rapper DaBaby’s homophobic and anti-HIV speech at the Rolling Loud music festival sparked outrage on Twitter.
The 29-year-old Capricorn uttered the comments during his live set at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens on Sunday, July 25.
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in 2, 3 weeks, then put your cellphone light up.
“Ladies, if your pu$$y smell like water, put a cellphone light them up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot put your cellphone light up. Keep it real.”
Ghey Twitter lit up as users expressed their outrage when the video went viral last night.
HIV advocacy groups slammed the rap star for “spreading misinformation about HIV.”
“It’s wrong for people living with HIV to be made to feel lesser or excluded because of their diagnosis – it should be unacceptable in the musical industry and in society at large,” said Richard Angell, campaigns director at the Terrence Higgins Trust.
“Comments like DaBaby’s perpetuate HIV-related stigma and discrimination, as well as spreading misinformation about HIV.
“You can now live a long, healthy life with HIV thanks to medical progress when you’re diagnosed and accessing treatment.
“That’s why it’s important to challenge anything that deters people from testing and learning the facts about HIV.”
