DaBaby’s Lollapalooza Performance Canceled Following Homophobic Comments
Lollapalooza announced that Young Thug, previously scheduled to perform Sunday afternoon, will be bumped up into DaBaby’s scheduled slot on Sunday night. G Herbo will perform in Young Thug’s afternoon slot.
A rep for DaBaby did not immediately reply to request for comment.
DaBaby has been heavily criticized following his Rolling Loud comments, during which he told the crowd, “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 p—y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up! Fellas, if you ain’t sucking di– in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!”
GLAAD called the comments “inaccurate, hurtful and harmful,” and DaBaby has been criticized by several artists over the past week — including his “Levitating” remix co-star Dua Lipa, who was “surprised and horrified” by his words. DaBaby later described his comments on HIV/AIDS as “insensitive” but defended his words as intended for his Rolling Loud crowd, and not for mass consumption.
Foo Fighters will headline the final night of Lollapalooza, which has also included performances by Post Malone, Miley Cyrus, Tyler, The Creator and Journey, among many others.
