"Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will no longer be performing at Grant Park tonight." The festival said in a statement Sunday morning. Young Thug will play at the set time previously scheduled for DaBaby. G Herbo is a new addition to the lineup.

The rapper took to Instagram live to address his diatribe, expressing things like "my gay fans ain't no nasty gay n****s..." He only dug himself into a deeper hole when he tweeted his version of an apology. He wrote, "Anybody who done ever been [affected] 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."

Lollapalooza, the first major American music festival to be held since the start of the pandemic, comes to a close today.
