“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,” he said during that time.
Presently, he’s attempting to make it up for those individuals whom he verbally hurt and affronts by meeting with Black pioneers from nine HIV associations through a virtual, private gathering.
“We believed that if he connected with Black leaders living with HIV that a space for community building and healing could be created. We are encouraged he swiftly answered our call and joined us in a meaningful dialogue and a thoughtful, educational meeting,” the statement read.
“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,” the associations expressed in a joint articulation.
They went on to say that their appreciation and 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.”

Interesting how the #DaBaby (not unlike Nick Cannon being forced to meet Rabbis) is meeting with LGBTQ and HIV orgs about his stupid comments, but he's not meeting any Black leaders about promoting drug use/selling, misogyny, murder and violence in the Black community. Why not?🤔— Weed Richards (@FCoreyBway) September 1, 2021

I respect this highly it’s not healthy just to attack and cancel people for shit like this. people should instead try to educating and open conversation so the person knows what they did and can learn and grow https://t.co/slx0EiLqkM— KeethBeats (@Mack2013Keon) September 1, 2021
I just don’t believe him at all that he cares. He was so blatantly homophobic and backed up his words after the backlash. He knew what he was doing. https://t.co/OpYt4mYSR3— 𝐊𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐬 (@Kbmoore8) September 1, 2021
