Miley Cyrus has offered to educate DaBaby about the LGBTQIA + community as he faces a cancellation due to controversial remarks he made on a recent live broadcast.
While onstage at a concert in the Miami area, the Grammy-nominated rapper used foul language and asked attendees who weren’t gay or people unaffected by HIV or AIDS to raise the lamp of their cell phone. He then mistakenly said that the disease “will kill you in two or three weeks.” His remarks sparked an immediate reaction and he was quickly excluded from appearances such as New York’s Governors Ball, Day N Vegas, and Chicago’s Lollapalooza.
The rapper offered two apologies for this before Cyrus took to his Instagram to post a statement about the culture and education cancellation regarding the LGBTQIA + community. In the caption of her post, she specifically tagged DaBaby, real name Jonathan Kirk, offering her personal help in educating her about HIV and AIDS in the community.
“@DaBaby is checking your DMS – I would love to speak up and see how we can learn from each other and help be part of a fairer and more understanding future! She wrote, directing him and his readers to the Greater Than Aids public information organization.
