DaBaby has been dropped from New York City’s 2021 Governors Ball Festival due to his homophobic rant at Miami’s Rolling Loud concert.
The official Twitter account of the Governors Ball reposted the lineup chart with DaBaby’s name excluded while issuing the following statement, “Founders Entertainment does not and will not tolerate hate or discrimination of any kind. We welcome and celebrate the diverse communities that make New York City the greatest city in the world. Thank you to the fans who continue to speak up for what is right. Along with you we will continue to use our platform for good.”
Stay tuned for a lineup addition. pic.twitter.com/ED4rhbL9Wm— The Governors Ball (@GovBallNYC) August 2, 2021
This is the second concert in 24 hours DaBaby has been dropped from; Chicago’s Lollapalooza announced yesterday that DaBaby would not be performing his headlining set at the festival over the weekend. The rapper is also no longer performing in Manchester’s Parklife Festival in September either.
Fans didn’t seem to fazed by the news and are commenting on who the Governors Ball should replace DaBaby’s act with:
