Well, while it looks like DaBaby was able to dodge the hell out of that shoe that was launched at his head during his ‘Rolling Loud: Miami’ set, he may not be able to do the same with the backlash coming his way for this random and unnecessary outburst during that same little number.
DaBaby is not stranger to controvery what so ever and apparently that won’t be changing anytime soon. The ‘Blame it on Baby’ rapper made plenty headlines following his Rolling Loud festival performance in Miami yesterday, mostly for a shoe being launched at him, performing Megan Thee Stallion’s record ‘Cash Sh*t’ solo despite their recent beef, and even bringing out her nemesis petite rapper Tory Lanez as well. However, it was some disgusting remarks about HIV positive people and gay men that seem to be generating a ton of backlash for the rapper via social media.
During his set he randomly told the audience, “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.” However, he didn’t stop there. He felt the need to take it a step further and continue “Ladies, if your p***y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up,” while his hypeman could be heard co-signing in the background “let’s be real about this sh*t, some of y’all are real suspect.”
Social media wasted to time condemning the rapper for his vile comments. One Twitter user made a great point writing, “DaBaby being homophobic talking about spreading HIV/AIDS while performing in front of a crowd of 1000s of ppl in a global pandemic is a juicy contradiction.” Another said: “DaBaby: Black Lives Matter UNLESS you’re gay, have HIV AIDS, or are a woman. Police brutality is bad, but shoot your girlfriend in the foot during an argument? BRING THAT MAN UP ON STAGE.”

During his set, a member of the audience threw their shoe at DaBaby. Whether it was in response to his unncecessart comments or the fact he brought Lanez out on stage is yet to be confirmed, but – in the words of Twitter user @BlackMajiiik: “Blessings to whoever threw that shoe at DaBaby. May your socks always find their match and your headphones never die when you leave the house.”
What makes this so sad, it that nothing Baby said had anything to do with the music he was presenting on stage, like, why was HIV, Aids, or men giving oral on your mind at this particular moment? Take a look at the footage along with many of the reactions below and let us know what you think of this mess.
Blessings to whoever threw that shoe at DaBaby.
May your socks always find their match & your headphones never die when you leave the house.

The fact that DaBaby bringing out Tory Lanez is the headline and not his homophobic comments and jab at people with HIV/AIDS says everything I need to know about this trash ass society.
