Dua Lipa Blasts DaBaby as Backlash Over Homophobic Remarks Intensifies

Published: Tuesday 27th Jul 2021 by Sam

Dua Lipa may have ascended to the top of the charts with ‘Levitating’ collaborator DaBaby, but that isn’t stopping her from voicing her disgust at the homophobic remarks he made about gay people at Rolling Loud Miami. 

As reported, the MC shocked the fans at the festival, when he randomly said:

“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, then put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”

In the time since, the backlash has grown enormously – particularly after the rapper seemingly doubled down on his comments while ironically trying to extinguish the flames of anger.

Now, as the fury burns hotter, Lipa is the latest name to weigh in.

Her words below…

Addressing the drama, the singer took to Instagram Stories and wrote:

“I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby’s comments. I really don’t recognise this as the person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS.”

Lipa’s comments undoubtedly mirror the mass sentiment, unlike the ignorance spewed by embattled rapper T.I.

As reported, he defended DaBaby and bizarrely tried to make a correlation between his words and the lyrical liberation of queer performer Lil Nas X.

    Go on Dua! Bust his ass wide open! (No pun intended 💋)

    This means nothing if she does not pull the song they did together. When tory shot meg, jojo pulled him off the remix promptly and released it solo

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 July 27, 2021

      Why should SHE pull HER song over HIS comments?

    • Clarks0o00ñ July 27, 2021

      Pull what? 😂😂

      The difference is dua lipa’s song with dababy is hot right now receiving over 4 million streams everyday , while jojo’s song with tory lanez was a flop nobody had ever heard about

    Closet cases are the only ones Intimidated so why is he pressed? DaBaby needs to grow up and get educated on H** which can lead to A***- that men and women can contact. And there are healthy H** positive people amongst us in the streets to the music industry and Hollywood.

    DaBaby had been trash, assaulting women etc before Dua worked with him so yeah, she’s just trying to protect her brand.

  6. Yummy Cummy July 27, 2021

    All media platforms need to pull the remix version with da baby on it. Levitating solo version is way more better. #LET’S BANNED DA BABY

  7. truthteller July 27, 2021

    Let’s see if Dua pulls his version of the track. Somehow I doubt it.

  8. James July 27, 2021

    This may mess things up now for the song to win a 2022 Grammy. This version is more popular than the original. This version could possibly hit 1 billion streams.

  9. James July 27, 2021

    Love Dua for standing up!!

  10. Jake July 27, 2021
