Written by on August 2, 2021

US music festival Lollapalooza has dropped rapper DaBaby from its Sunday line-up over comments he made about people with HIV and Aids.

The Chicago festival tweeted that “Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love.

“With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight.”

The rapper has been widely condemned for homophobic and derogatory comments he made about HIV and gay men.

While performing at Rolling Loud festival in Miami on 25 July, he urged the audience to “put your cell phone light up”, apart from those who were HIV-positive or were gay men who had sex in car parks.

He also wrongly claimed that HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases would “make you die in two or three weeks”.
