'Real Housewives of Potomac' Star Candiace Dillard Slams Rapper DaBaby's 'Disgusting' Homophobic Remarks
Controversial rapper DaBaby hurled a slew of homophobic insults over the weekend while performing in Miami at the Rolling Loud music festival, where he disparaged those living with HIV, calling it a deadly disease.
Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard took to social media to slam the rapper for his outlandish remarks. “Dababy has some explaining to do,” she tweeted on Monday, July 26.
“I’m just really bothered by what he said. To refer to HIV and AIDS as a ‘deadly disease’ that kills people in ‘2-3 weeks’ is disgusting and dangerous at best,” she continued, before asking: “Like. Why would you say that?”
The “Walker Texas Ranger” crooner did not respond to the reality TV star's tweet, but plenty of her fans did, offering up their own explanations as to why he felt the need to disparage the LGBTQ+ community on stage.

As OK! previously reported, the 29-year-old rapper launched into an anti-gay rant on Sunday, telling the audience: “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 took it a step further, saying,“Ladies, if your p***y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.” His DJ in the background added: “Let’s be real about this sh*t, some of y’all n****s suspect as a motherfuc*er.”
Following his homophobic outburst, rapper T.I. seemingly cosigned DaBaby’s hurtful words. T.I. commented on a clip of DaBaby’s performance, saying: "If Lil Nas X can kick his sh*t in peace... so should dababy #equality," he said, referring to openly gay rapper Lil Nas X.
DaBaby tried to clarify his remarks via his Instagram Story on Monday, claiming that the internet had “twisted up” his words. “All my fans at the show, the gay ones and the straight ones, we turned the fu*k up,” he said. He went on to say that his hateful words weren’t directed at his gay fans because they “don’t got AIDS,” adding, they’re not “junkies” and "take care" of themselves.
