T.I. USES LIL NAS X AS JUSTIFICATION FOR DABABY’S ‘HOMOPHOBIC’ RANT AT ROLLING LOUD!

Written by on July 26, 2021

DaBaby came under the wrath of social media once a clip from his Sunday (July 25) Rolling Loud performance went viral featuring a rant deemed to be homophobic.

T.I. inserted himself into the conversation and stepped in to defend the Charlotte rapper and even used Lil Nas X — who is openly gay — as justification for Baby’s incendiary statements.

“If Lil Nas X can kick his shit in peace… so should dababy #equality,” Tip wrote in The Shade Room‘s comments after DaBaby set Twitter ablaze.

“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up,” DaBaby said in the midst of his set.

“Ladies, if your pussy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cell phone lighter up. Let’s keep it real.”

T.I. then hopped on Instagram on Monday (July 26) to attempt to clarify his comment with more context but his explanation may have done more damage in the eyes of fans.

“If you gonna have the Lil Nas X video and him living his truth, you gonna damn sure have people like DaBaby who gonna speak their truth,” he said. “Ain’t nothing wrong with none of it, it ain’t got to be no hate — it’s all honesty. Everybody living in their truth.”

Tip went on to say that he respects individuals living their truth such as Lil Nas X and Frank Ocean rather than those in hiding. The Atlanta-bred mogul then said he wouldn’t want his kids exposed to Lil Nas X’s sexually explicit “INDUSTRY BABY” just as he wouldn’t want them watching Cardi B’s raunchy “WAP” video.

And ended his rant with you “gotta let everyone live in their truth.”

BUT the question is… What is DaBaby’s Truth? From what we heard, there was a lot of disrespectful things being said about people who are hiv positive, women being objectified and absolutely nothing prideful about his heterosexuality.

So T.I. maybe you should have just kept your BIG MOUTH SHUT! You just can’t compare apples and oranges.
