DaBaby booted from Lollapalooza after homophobic commentsCHICAGO (AP) — Rapper DaBaby was cut Sunday from Lollapalooza's closing lineup following crude and homophobic remarks he made last week at a Miami-area music festival. The Grammy-nominated artist, whose name is Jonathan Kirk, had been scheduled as a closing act on the final night of the four-day music festival in downtown Chicago. I read his name as 'DaBooty,' like this dude isn't gay. With a name like 'DaBaby.' If you know what goes on at the underground mansion parties.........you know the undercover gay lifestyle these rappers have to partake in by their master-record company handlers. In the important BLM, anti-racism, social shift it is time to also talk openly about the homophobia in black male culture.
