During his performance at the event, Dababy – real name, Jonathan Lyndale Kirk – says to the large crowd;

“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two or three weeks, put your cellphone light in the air.”

“Ladies, if your p**** smell like water, put your cellphone light in the air. Fellas, if you ain’t suck a n**** d*** in the parking lot, put your cellphone lights in the air. Keep it f****** real.”

Many believe it was a downgrading remark aimed at gay people and people living with HIV/AIDS, and as a result called on many artists who have collaborated with him to “cancel” him.

Superstar singer, Dua Lipa is first to have spoken out against the rapper, stating;

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

Dababy refuted claims his comments were aimed at the community, rather blaming it on being taken out of context.

So far, rappers TI and Tory Lanez are the only rappers to come forward to his aid with comments.
