DaBaby receives open letter from 11 HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ organizations inviting him to private educational meeting

November 13th, 2022

Almost a dozen HIV/AIDS and LGBTQ organizations want to have a meeting with DaBaby following the homophobic comments he made during a Rolling Loud performance last month.

On Wednesday (Aug. 4), 11 organizations, including GLAAD and Black AIDS Institute, released an open letter inviting the North Carolina rapper to a private, off-the-record meeting to educate him about HIV/AIDS epidemic and why the homophobic comments he uttered at the 2021 Rolling Loud Miami Festival last month were misinformed and damaging.

“We, the undersigned, represent organizations leading the fight to prevent HIV and provide care and treatment for people living with HIV, especially Black LGBTQ people across the Southern United States,” the letter begins. “We heard your inaccurate and harmful comments at Rolling Loud and have read your Instagram apology. 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.”
