The Grammy-nominated artist, whose name is Jonathan Kirk, was scheduled to close on the last night of the four-day music Festival in downtown Chicago. Lollapalooza’s organizers tweeted on Sunday that rapper Young Thug would be performing at 9 p.m. instead.

“Lollapalooza is based on diversity, inclusivity, respect and love”, organizers wrote. “With that in mind, DaBaby will not be performing at Grant Park tonight.”

Festival organizers did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In recent days, artists like Madonna, Questlove and Elton John have been making comments that DaBaby made during a performance last Sunday at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

On stage, the rapper called on members of the LGBTQ community and people living with HIV and AIDS. In rude language, he asked attendees who were not gay men or people with HIV or AIDS to light their cell phone flashlights, falsely saying that the disease “would make you die in two or three weeks.”

DaBaby’s representatives did not immediately respond to emails requesting comment. A person who picked up the phone to his label, South Coast Music Group, on Sunday and didn’t give his name, said: “No comment.”

The North Carolina rapper’s song “Rockstar” was one of the biggest hits of 2020 and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Record of the Year.
