Megan Thee Stallion Says Gay Representation Within Rap Is ‘Really Crucial’ Following DaBaby’s Homophobic Remarks

Megan Thee Stallion is supporting the gay community amid DaBaby‘s homophobia controversy.

Yesterday (Thursday, August 5th), PEOPLE published its sit-down with Megan Thee Stallion, and she addressed homophobia within the rap community. Specifically, the “Thot Sh*t” rapper spoke on the increasing LGBTQ+ acceptance and representation in the rap game, stating:

“It is about time. Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”

While she did not mention any names, Megan Thee Stallion‘s statement comes on the heels of DaBaby‘s controversy from his Lollapalooza performance. Back on July 25th, DaBaby performed a set at Lollapalooza in Chicago, which was notably right after Megan Thee Stallion was on stage. During his controversial set, DaBaby performed one one of his collaborations with Megan Thee Stallion–“Cry Baby”–before bringing out Tory Lanez, who is accused of shooting her in the foot last July. DaBaby proceeded to perform “Cash Sh*t”–another Megan song–alongside Tory Lanez.

However, his sneak-diss to Megan Thee Stallion wasn’t the only thing DaBaby did to spark controversy. During his performance, DaBaby made negative comments about people with HIV and gay men, stating:

“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 ya cellphone light in the air…. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d*ck in the parking lot, put ya cellphone light in the air. Keep it f*cking real!”

In the aftermath, DaBaby was dropped from numerous music festivals, and has even lost his clothing deal with boohooMAN.
