Megan Thee Stallion Believes That It’s Time For The Rap Industry To Tackle LGBTQ Hate: “It Is Really Crucial”

While speaking to PEOPLE Magazine as she teased her new Bitcoin for Hotties video with Cash App, the 26-year-old rap star told the outlet, “It is about time,” she explained regarding the rap community finally confronting itself about its widespread rhetoric concerning the LGBTQ+ community. “Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”

As we previously reported, while performing at Rolling Loud last month, DaBaby said to fans in the crowd: “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. Ladies, if your p–sy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t s–king d*ck in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.” As the clip circulated online, DaBaby continued to face backlash which led to a total of 7 festivals dropping him as a musical act.

DaBaby has offered two apologies since people tried to cancel him online. In his latest one he said, “Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate and learn from your mistakes,” he wrote. “As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me — knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance — has been challenging.”

He added,

“I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made,” the rapper wrote in a note posted to his verified Instagram page. “Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important.”

So far, 11 organization have reached out to him wanting to educate the rapper on HIV following his “hurtful comments.”
