DaBaby defended his anti-gay remarks at the Rolling Loud Miami festival by saying that he can't be homophobic because he has gay people in his family.
"I didn't mean what you think I mean. What you want me to do? Go look myself in the mirror and say, 'You don't like gay people?' Nah. I'm not trippin' on gay people at all. If I said what I said to get people to raise they cell phones and it was misinterpreted by people who watch a five-second clip at home," he said in the interview. "You not supposed to understand what's going on. You could raise your cell phone if you wanted to. You ain't supposed to be able to digest a clip that's been altered and shortened with a narrative to go along with it, with enough people driving it, it gonna do what it do."
He continued, "When I tell you that, "OK cool, let's move forward knowing that wasn't my intention.' Hey look, if I ain't murdered a man, I don't care who said, 'You killed him, you killed him, you killed him.' I did not kill the man. They want me to plead guilty to what they're saying. There's gay people in my family. What I look like?"
