Megan Thee Stallion has weighed in on homophobia amongst the Hip Hop community following the “cancellation” of DaBaby.
Homophobia has been the subject of debate since DaBaby’s remarks on stage at Rolling Loud Miami.
“It is about time,” she said to PEOPLE. “Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”
Megan has faced her own allegations of homophobia after old tweets from her teenage years surfaced online.
The Houston Hottie used derogatory language in one tweet that read, “This lil f–got just pissed me off,” she wrote when she was 17 or 18.
However, unlike DaBaby, Meg offered up a sincere apology immediately, taking full accountability.
“I grew up& learned how to not be insensitive. I don’t judge anyone I accept everyone as they are no matter their color or sexual preference,” she tweeted.
So far, despite releasing two apologies, DaBaby has mostly blamed the media for the reactions to his comments.
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up,” said DaBaby. “Ladies, if your p–sy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t s–king d–k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
Earlier this week, 11 national LGBTQ and HIV/AIDS organizations released an open letter to DaBaby asking for a private meeting with him to offload some facts about HIV.
“We heard your inaccurate and harmful comments at Rolling Loud and have read your Instagram apology,” the statement reads. “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.”
So far, DaBaby has not accepted the invitation. At least not in public.
