He’s just trying to fix the mess. He can take his homophobic 🍑 to streets again cuz he’s over!

Elton John Gets the Last Word in the DaBaby Homophobia DebacleThe legendary singer and AIDS activist said DaBaby's recent comments fuel 'stigma and discrimination.' Elton John can go to hell. Eminem had said a lot more worst things than what Dababy said. And Elton John was all hug up on him on stage. On top of everything else, Elton John hasn't said a thing about Ed Buck where Black men was mysteriously dying at his home.
