Anitta is the latest singer to come out and blast DaBaby over homophobic comments he made during Rolling Loud last weekend!
Anitta has become the latest pop star to turn on collaborator DaBaby after he made homophobic remarks during a gig on Sunday (July 25).
The Brazilian, who recorded “Girl From Rio” with the rapper, has made it clear she does not support the comments he made at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, Florida.
DaBaby upset fans and followers when he encouraged concertgoers to “put your cellphone light in the air” if “you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks.”
He has been blasted for his insensitivity, while leading gay rights groups and Elton John have criticized the rap star for spreading misinformation.
His “Levitating” collaborator Dua Lipa has also made it clear she’s not standing by the rap star and now Anitta has commented on the drama, tweeting: “I will always stand with my LGBTQ+ community. Also sending all my respect and support to stop any ignorance and stigma around HIV/AIDS. I condemn any demonstration of hate. Let love shine through.”
I will always stand with my LGBTQ+ community. Also sending all my respect and support to stop any ignorance and stigma around HIV/AIDS. I condemn any demonstration of hate. Let love shine through.

“I was hypothetically asked if I was curating an updated version of #SummerOfSoul who would be my acts?” the drummer, who directed the music documentary Summer of Soul, wrote, resubmitting the list with DaBaby’s name crossed out. “I gave my dream list.
“And now I’m updating my list – because it’s 2021 & f### the b#######. I’m especially not here for any savagery (if you’re lost: Google the idiocy of the crossed out)… Right is right & his actions are wrong. Somebody Gotta say it: Homophobia/Transphobia/Xenophobia/Misogyny/Racism – this should go w/o (without) saying is morally wrong.”
DaBaby has since apologized for his comments, stating: “Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody.”
