The conversation around DaBaby and his homophobic remarks at Rolling Loud continues to make headlines. 

While last week seemed to be filled with condemnation for the Charlotte rapper, it appears that several HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ organizations, including GLAAD and the Black AIDS Institute, are looking to educate DaBaby instead of canceling him. 

“We heard your inaccurate and harmful comments at Rolling Loud and have read your Instagram apology,” the letter reads. “However, at a time when HIV continues to disproportionately impact Black Americans and queer and transgender people of color, a dialogue is critical. We must address the miseducation about HIV, expressed in your comments, and the impact it has on various communities.” 

The signatories of the letter also noted how powerful of an advocate DaBaby can be and how important it is for someone with such a huge platform to spread accurate information. 

“You can be a powerful and influential voice, especially across your home base in the South, where the Black community’s needs are notoriously under-represented across every public spectrum,” the statement continues. “We encourage you to share this information with your fans and followers, and become an agent of truth and change.”
