Well, it is time to block another artist on Spotify as rapper DaBaby spread harmful misinformation about AIDs and HIV this past weekend.
The ‘Babysitter’ rapper stated to a crowd in Miami the following:
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two, three weeks, put your cellphone light up”.
Videos of the rant began to circulate and since then, he has attempted to apologize after being called out by artists such as Dua Lipa, Sir Elton John, and Demi Lovato and fans worldwide on social media. Legendary performer and activist Sir Elton John tweeted:
He (DaBaby) has also been dropped by numerous brands including Boohoo, and taken a significant hit on streaming plays. On top of this hateful speech, Tory Lanez was there and I could not have been happier to have missed out on this festival with that information in mind.
