Original Story: DaBaby has found himself in the hot seat yet again after controversial statements he made during Rolling Loud. Rapper DaBaby, born Jonathan Kirk, took the stage at the Rolling Loud Music Festival this past weekend in Miami. During his set, the 29-year-old rapper caught some people off guard by making comments about HIV/AIDS and gay men. While still on stage he said,
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV/AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will make you die in 2 [or] 3 weeks put a cellphone light in the air.”
“Ladies if your p*ssy smell like water put a cellphone light in the air.”
DaBaby continued on with his questionable remarks and said,
“Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d*ck in the parking lot put ya cellphone light in the air.”
“Keep it f*cking real!”

After a video of his comments was shared online many people took to Twitter to call the ‘Bop’ rapper out.
This isn’t the only time that DaBaby was seemingly dragged by fans online for his actions at this year’s Rolling Loud event. As previously reported, some fans bashed him for bringing Tory Lanez out to perform with him right after Megan Thee Stallion wrapped up her own performance.

Megan Thee Stallion has been pretty vocal about her issues with former friend Tory Lanez after he allegedly shot her in the foot last summer.
Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby’s own friendship recently came to an end after Megan called DaBaby out for jumping on the Tory Lanez’ track ‘SKAT’ last month.
