Drama and Disappointment After Musician's Divisive Words

DaBaby is easily one of the biggest trap artists of the time, and being a star means that you play the biggest concerts. I.e. Rolling Loud.
DaBaby has been called out by several other music stars such as Dua Lipa and Elton John about his homophobic comments during Rolling Loud.
According to PRIDE, Lipa said, “I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby’s comments … I really don’t recognize this as the person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS.”
Lipa wasn't the only person who was trying to extinguish the ignorance fire. Others such as Lil Nas X’s dad and even the legend himself Sir Elton John, gave him their two cents.
John wrote on his Twitter, “We've been shocked to read about the HIV misinformation and homophobic statements made at a recent DaBaby show … This fuels stigma and discrimination and is the opposite of what our world needs to fight the AIDS epidemic.”
However it does seem like the backlash got to him in some sort of way. He took to Twitter to apologize about his comments saying, “Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies. But the LGBT community... I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”
However, fans didn't seem to take this as a genuine apology. One fan on Twitter wrote, “these comments from non-LGBT people forgiving him and accepting his apology even tho it’s not theirs to accept is weird.”
Emma Roberts Thanks the Gays

The beloved Emma Roberts thanks the gays for a meme of herself that escalated to be a viral sensation.
Roberts took to social media to thank “the gays and whoever else” for making the meme go viral.
According to PRIDE, “It all started with Roberts posting a *cough* candid *cough* video of herself on the beach to her Instagram. In the video, Roberts is flipping her hair, giggling, and sticking out her tongue — and honestly looking gorgeous — to the song ‘Happiness is a Butterfly’ by Lana Del Rey. Basically, it was begging for memeification, and the ‘gays and whoever else’ came through, quickly making it go viral.”
You can find some examples of the meme on Twitter where a slew of the memes has been created.
PRIDE reported that she posted a section from her video, writing, “Me going viral after 30. Thank you gays and whoever else,” which kickstarted a whole new round of memes.
Roberts has also done some recent activities to show her love for the LGBT community. One such action being that she unfollowed DaBaby after his homophobic comments.
