While he, or at least his music, is still beloved by many, DaBaby is certainly not a figure without controversy. One contentious moment in his career was when he made homophobic remarks at a concert, specifically at the 2021's Rolling Loud Miami music festival.

This led to a saga of half apologies on his part, some celebrities defending him, others calling him out for his remarks, festivals dropping him, and the internet losing its collective mind. Eventually, he issued a formal apology on Instagram, which has since been deleted.
