Jonathan Kirk, better known as DaBaby, responded to critics after he was accused of being homophobic during his performance at the Rolling Loud Miami music festival on Sunday.


The rapper sparked anger when a video of him at the show was shared saying, “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 you 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.”

The rapper shared a series of videos on his Instagram Story. In the videos, he told his critics to “shut the f— up.”

“What I do at a live show is for the audience at the live show,” he said. “It’ll never translate correctly to somebody looking at a little five, six-second clip from their … crib on their phone. It just [doesn’t] work like that.”

“Because regardless of what you mother— are talking about and how the internet twisted up my mother— words, me and all my fans at the show, the gay ones and the straight ones, we turned the f— up.”

He mentioned that there was a gay fan present during his performance at the Miami Garens’ Hard Rock Stadium and said, “I’m talking about my boy that was at the front of stage left, where I jumped. Ask Him. He got clips all on his s—, the whole night he was recording. We were turnt the whole night.”

He said that the performance was for the people who “paid the money and took the time out of [their life] to come enjoy the show,” DaBaby continued. “Come f— with the live show, killer, gay or straight.”

“I wasn’t going on no rant. That’s called a call to action – that’s what that’s called. Because I’m a live performer. I’m the best live performer. I’m the live show killer. You interact with your fans, you get what I’m saying?”

“All the lights went up, gay or straight,” he continued. “You wanna know why? Because even my gay fans don’t [have] f— AIDS … They don’t [have] AIDS. My gay fans, they take care of [themselves], they ain’t going for that. They got class. They ain’t sucking no d— in no parking lot. You gotta get a room, a good one – five-star hotel … Even my gay fans got standards.”

He told his critics once again to “Shut the f– up. Don’t be disturbing my mother— gay fans and making them feel uncomfortable in [their] skin.”

“Gay or straight, or … both, or whatever. Don’t none of that s— matter to me,” he said. “What [matters] to me, when I’m on that stage, is putting on the show for any and everybody that’s out there and that’s what the f— I did.”
