DaBaby issues formal apology for homophobic comments

DaBaby has issued a formal apology for his comments about HIV/AIDS during his set at Rolling Loud Miami.

The singer, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, lost several gigs following the on-stage outburst, including the Governors Ball and Lollapalooza.

"I want to apologise to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made.

"Again, I apologise for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important," he said.

During his tirade, DaBaby also made several lewd remarks about the LGBTQ+ community.

Several artists including Madonna, Elton John and Dua Lipa have denounced his remarks.
