DaBaby Said He Would Do An Apology Video to Save Lollapalooza Gig, But Never Delivered – Festivals Dropped Him Shortly Thereafter
New details have surfaced surrounding DaBaby and why he was dropped by multiple music festivals.
According to Billboard, the rapper promised festival promoters that he would record an apology video to the LGBTQ community. DaBaby was to do a short video that would be played before he took the stage at Lollapalooza in Chicago on Sunday, Aug. 1 However, that video was said to have never arrived. Shortly thereafter, he was dropped by several festivals sometime after.
“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important. Love to all. God bless.”
He is still scheduled to perform at an Aug. 14 concert in Bonner Springs, Kansas; Hot 97 Summer Jam in East Rutherford, N.J., on Aug. 22; and a Sept. 4 concert at Fiddler’s Green near Denver for radio station KS 107.5 F.M.
His team has yet to reacted to these reports.
