DaBaby has reportedly sat down with 9 LGBT and HIV organizations after social media canceled him for his homophobic rant.
The rapper met with GLAAD, the Black AIDS Institute, Transinclusive Group and Positive Women’s Network — and they said that he was genuinely engaged in their discussions.
“During our meeting, DaBaby was genuinely engaged, apologized for the inaccurate and hurtful comments he made about people living with HIV, and received our personal stories and the truth about HIV and its impact on Black and LGBTQ communities with deep respect,” a statement released by the organizations reads per Variety.
“We appreciate that he openly and eagerly participated in this forum of Black people living with HIV, which provided him an opportunity to learn and to receive accurate information.”
Marnina Miller of the Southern AIDS Coalition, who participated in the meeting, said in a statement: “DaBaby’s willingness to listen, learn, and grow can open the door to an entirely new generation of people to do the same.”
