T.I. is still sharing his thoughts on DaBaby’s controversial comments at Rolling Loud.
On Wednesday, Tip hopped on IG Live to get some things off his chest. He basically doubled down on his defense of DaBaby and said he believes rappers are the actual victims of harassment by those in the “gay community.”

“Why do words cause such a visceral reaction that will lead to someone trying to attack, villainize, demonize, crucify, condemn and like, it’s, that sh*t is like, now you bullying,” he lamented. “We all stood up on behalf of gays and lesbians and people in the gay community because we thought it was some bullsh*t for y’all to have to be bullied. But I don’t think any of us did that to feel like you would now have the authority to come and bully us.”
The Atlanta bred-rapper also chatted with comedian Zo and said he believed Da Baby’s comments were merely part of his show and the call to action was not intended to be offensive.
For what it’s worth, we think you can give a “call to action” to your audience without coming for peoples personal hygiene or personal life choices, but that’s just our two cents.
On Tuesday, Da Baby real name Jonathan Kirk also issued an apology for his remarks via Twitter.
“Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies,” he tweetedTuesday evening.
“But the LGBT community… I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”
This comes after he tried to explain away his remarks in a post on Monday. He also received a tons of backlash on Twitter, and artists like Elton John, Dua Lipa and Amber Rose called him out as well.
