T.I. has shared a video in the wake of the DaBaby homophobic drama, claiming that the LGBTQ+ community has a penchant for bullying rappers.
He had initially supported DaBaby’s homophobic rant, saying that “If Lil Nas X can kick his shit in peace… so should DaBaby.”
He has more to say.
“Everyone up in arms and upset about what DaBaby said. I understand people saying that they feel that it’s insensitive,” he said in an Instagram Live session. “I think you guys have to understand that onstage, that’s not the place that rappers go to be sensitive and soothe everybody’s feelings. It’s a place to go to have a good time.”
T.I. then claimed that DaBaby is being crucified and villainized by the queer community.
“Why do words cause such a visceral reaction that will lead to someone trying to attack, villainize, demonize, crucify, condemn and like, that shit is like, now you bullying,” he continued. “We all stood up on behalf of gays and lesbians and people in the gay community because we thought it was some bullshit for y’all to have to be bullied. … But I don’t think any of us did that to feel like you would now have the authority to come and bully us.”
