After Being Dropped From Lollapalooza Festival Over the Weekend, DaBaby is Removed From Upcoming Governors Ball Over Homophobic Comments

When it rains, it pours!

Jonathan Lyndale Kirk also known as rapper DaBaby has been embroiled in controversy since he made homophobic remarks last week during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami. Based on the remarks, he has been dropped from yesterday’s Lollapalooza Festival and it was announced earlier today that the Governors Ball festival has also removed him from their upcoming lineup in New York City.

“Founders Entertainment does not and will not tolerate hate or discrimination of any kind. We welcome and celebrate the diverse communities that make New York City the greatest city in the world. Thank you to the fans who continue to speak up for what is right. Along with you, we will continue to use our platform for good.”

The Governors Ball Music Festival will be celebrating its 10th anniversary, which is scheduled to take place Sept. 24 through Sept. 26 at Citi Field in Queens.

This cancellation comes on the heels of the organizers for Lollapalooza announcing via their Twitter account yesterday that they were taking DaBaby off its showcase of artists in Chicago, Illinois yesterday.

According to CBS News, the initial fallout took place after comments DaBaby said while onstage at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami on July 25. “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 cell phone light up.”

Earlier today, Day N Vegas also announced DaBaby’s removal from their lineup for a planned November show.

“DaBaby will no longer be appearing at Day N Vegas 2021. Roddy Ricch has been added to the lineup.”
