At this moment it seems things will not get any easier for DaBaby. Now the Harlem born rapper, Azealia Banks is suggestion to keep DaBaby canceled as she brings back an old incident.
DaBaby who has been hit with serious backlash after his homophobic remarks during his Rolling Loud performance, continues to feel the affect after losing numerous shows. Music festivals across the country has removed Dababy including Atlanta, Philly and even overseas in Manchester, England.
Even with an explanation on IG Live a day after his controversial remarks and an IG post with a lengthy apology to the LGBTQ+ community, it appears that nothing can save DaBaby. “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,” he wrote via an Instagram post.
Now Azealia Banks has refreshed everyone’s mind of another incident that took place back in 2020. Banks via her own IG Story wrote Monday night (August 3rd), “Y’all should have BEEN canceled Dababy when he was caught on camera punching a female fan in the face,” she wrote. “I’m not believing any of this performative canceling ppl are doing now when everyone was so quick to forget that happened. Apology or not, keep him canceled.”
On March 7th of 2020, DaBaby had performed at Whiskey North in Tampa, Fla. As the rapper made his way through the crowd, he is seen via surveillance camera hitting a woman. According to DaBaby he was hit with a phone and that is why he struck the fan. The rapper would also give an explanation and an apology via his IG Story. “I do sincerely apologize, I do. I’m very sorry that that was a female on the other end of that flashlight, that phone. Keep in mind I couldn’t see,” he explained.
But, the female who DaBaby allegedly slapped wasn’t buying the explanation. She quickly got a lawyer as she was in complete shock and embarrassed as she told TMZ. “I woke up, my head was hurting really really bad,” said the alleged victim to TMZ. “I do not feel he was sincere with the apology. I was embarrassed. I got people calling me. Writing to me on Instagram through fake pages. People seeing me at my job.”
