Megan Thee Stallion is taking the hip-hop community to task when it comes to homophobia, after her “Cash Shit” collaborator DaBaby’s misinformed rant about HIV/AIDS.
During his July 25 set at Rolling Loud Miami, DaBaby brought out Tory Lanez, who is accused of shooting Megan last summer, and later proceeded to go on a homophobic rant. “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. “Ladies, if your p—y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking di– in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
When asked by People in a new interview on Thursday about acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community, she responded, “It is about time. Representation is important, and it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human.”
In June 2019, Meg held herself accountable when her old homophobic tweets from 2011 and 2012 resurfaced online. “I’ve already apologized for tweets that obviously do not represent my views now. I don’t do nothing but show love to everyone so just stop,” the rapper wrote.
