Miley Cyrus Offers LGBTQ+ Education to DaBaby After Offensive Comments
Reading Time: 3 minutes
There’s a lot of controversy going on in the music industry after Dababy made homophobic comments on stage at the Rolling Loud Music Festival. Since this all happened, former The Voice coach Miley Cyrus has reached out to the singer to try to educate instead of cancel him.
Many celebrities have shared that they would be unfollowing Dababy after his comments, but Cyrus decided to take an alternative route. She wanted to take hate out of the internet and understand why he said what he did.
She posted a photo on Instagram that talked about how she is a proud and loyal LGBTQIA+ member and has dedicated most of her life to love and acceptance. In the photo, she writes about how the internet can fuel hate and how cancel culture is a serious problem since it doesn’t teach right from wrong. In her caption of the post she offered aid to this singer.
“@DaBaby check your DMS – would love to talk and see how we can learn from each other and help be part of making a more just and understanding future!”
This is not a surprise coming from the superstar since she is also the founder of the Happy Hippie Foundation. The Happy Hippie Foundation was founded in 2014 and fights to combat injustice, they focus primarily on homelessness and LGBTQ+ rights.
This act says a lot about who Cyrus is as a person. She wants to provide the foundation for him to understand why he was wrong and learn from the mistake.
Dababy Says Homophobic Comments On Stage at Rolling Loud
On July 25, Dababy practically ended his career after making comments about HIV/AIDs and his gay fans.
People were very upset after hearing his statement because it openly demonized people who identify as gay. This statement clearly showed that Dababy lacks education and inclusivity. Dababy posted Instagram stories explaining what he said, but he basically dug himself into a deeper hole.
Dababy has since issued two apologies after fans commented that the first sounded fake. It reads “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. So my apologies. But the LGBT community… I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”
Fans were still pretty mad to say the least. After a few days, he posted another apology, but this time to Instagram.
“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important.”
I think the whole situation is becoming real for him now since radios have stopped playing the version of “Levitating” featuring Dababy. They instead will play the version that only contains Dua Lipa. On top of the hit song no longer getting air time, Dababy is now getting pulled from other music festivals.
