DaBaby Meets with 9 HIV Organizations and "Genuinely" Apologizes for Homophobic Comments
We previously reported rapper #DaBaby making insensitive, inaccurate and homophobic comments during his Rolling Loud performance. Afterwards, he received tremendous backlash, resulting him being cancelled from many upcoming concerts he had booked.
Despite making several backhanded apologies both written and verbal, and even throwing shots at the #LGBTcommunity in both his music and on social media, DaBaby is once again trying to better his image. But is it enough after he showed his true colors?
On Tuesday, DaBaby met with a group of nine U.S. HIV organizations “to discuss HIV facts and share personal stories of living and thriving with HIV,” the organizations announced via a press release.
The meeting included representatives from Black AIDS Institute, Gilead Sciences COMPASS Initiative Coordinating Centers, GLAAD, National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), The Normal Anomaly Initiative, Positive Women’s Network-USA, Prevention Access Campaign (U=U), the Southern AIDS Coalition, and Transinclusive Group.
“During our meeting, DaBaby was genuinely engaged, apologized for the inaccurate and hurtful comments he made about people living with HIV, and received our personal stories and the truth about HIV and its impact on Black and LGBTQ communities with deep respect,” it continues.
“We appreciate that he openly and eagerly participated in this forum of Black people living with HIV, which provided him an opportunity to learn and to receive accurate information.”
