DaBaby is facing backlash after going on a homophobic rant during his Rolling Loud Miami set this weekend, when he mocked HIV-positive supporters and gay fans.

The rant hasn’t sat well with many on the internet, including the father of Lil Nas X.

“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,” DaBaby said. “Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone light in the air. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”

With T.I. and others defending the homophobic rant, Lil Nas’ father Robert Stafford opted to not stay silent on the issue, as DaBaby has been seemingly friendly and taken pictures with Nas in the past. 

“Bruh sit down you had your time,”​​​​​ the parental figure wrote on his Instagram Stories on top of a photo of the rapper with his son. 

Shortly after his rant, DaBaby doubled down on his views and said the internet is twisting his “motherfuckin’ words, calling those who were offended by his comments “bitter bitches.” He also added that his gay fans aren’t “nasty” and “take care” of themselves, sharing that because a male fan with a crop top was singing along, critics need to “shut the fuck up.”

“What me and my fans do at the live show, it don’t concern you niggas on the internet, or you bitter bitches on the internet. It’s not y’all business. What I do for the live show is for the audience at the live show,” he said. “It’ll never translate correctly to somebody looking at a little five, six-second clip from they goddamn crib on they phone. It just don’t work like that.”
