After offensive comments towards LGBTQIA+ community and people with HIV positive, Miley Cyrus and Nick Cannon beg fans to not cancel DaBaby.
According to BBC, DaBaby reportedly told audience at Rolling Loud music festival to put up their cell phone lights except the concertgoers who were HIV-positive or were gay men who had sex in car parks.
His comments real annoyed many including those who already worked with him like Dua Lipa, she uses her social media to distance herself from him.
After backlash, the rapper decided to issue an apology two times, but it did not catch people’s mind due to lack of remorse.
His comments catch attention of many celebs including legendary sir. Elton John, who expressed disappointment for his behaviour.
T.I is only rapper who tried defending him despite backlash, as many also condemn Atlanta rapper for being arrogant.
Miley Cyrus just shared her thoughts on DaBaby’s rant after apologizing, as part of community and best example to everyone, she felt obliged to stay with him and educate him some manners.
Miley believes DaBaby can listen and change if he got a room to be educated, “As a proud and loyal member of the LGBTQIA+ community, much of my life has been dedicated to encouraging love, acceptance, and open mindedness. The internet can fuel a lot of hate & anger and is the nucleus of cancel culture,” She wrote on Instagram.
“But I believe it can also be a place filled with education, conversation, communication & connection. It’s easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds,” she continued. “There’s no more room for division if we want to keep seeing progress! Knowledge is power! I know I still have so much to learn!”
Nick Cannon also shared his thought on rapper’s rant, begging industry to not cancel him, as he admits on “The Breakfast Club” that he was out of line.
“First of all, I think not only in the black community — and I’ve experienced it — but definitely just men a lot of times, we have that ego. We believe apologizing is weakness when it actually takes great strength to step up to anyone and say, ‘I was wrong,’” the father-of-seven said.
“I know Baby. And that’s a strong brother… That man just lost his pops, his brother, all the things that he [has been through] and still to have that big smile that he has every day, knowing everything that he comes [from]?” Cannon said. “He a fighter. We’ve seen his back against the wall. He’s swinging. He’s swinging just so he could get out. We all have to accept emotion.”
The “Wild N’ Out” host challenged everyone who wants to cancel somebody, and more specifically DaBaby, to use this moment as an opportunity for education.
“I challenge all these people who actually want to cancel somebody, and even specifically in DaBaby’s situation, let’s use this as an opportunity for education,” Cannon said.
He continued, “If I’m saying these things about the LGBTQIA community, show me where I’m wrong,” he said. “Not only is that going to help me, but you’re going to help so many other people who think like me. There are so many DaBabys out there.”
As you know, Cannon also faced the situation as DaBaby facing right now after sharing offensive comments towards Jewish, he wants people to not cancel him.
“This is a moment where we should all gather around DaBaby and embrace him because if we can do that, watch how many mentalities will change in the hip-hop community,” Cannon said.
