DaBaby's HIV rant — and Twitter apology — highlight hip-hop's LGBTQ problem

On July 25, rapper DaBaby interrupted the raucous return of Rolling Loud to Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, with an unsettling homophobic and HIV/AIDS stigma-filled rant.

DaBaby's comments were met with swift backlash from members of the LGBTQ community and its allies — Elton John, Angelica Ross, Jonathan Van Ness, Indya Moore, Madonna, Chika and Questlove were just a few of the entertainers stepping in to denounce his words.
