As TMZ reported earlier, the Blame It on Baby rapper recently met with a handful of HIV organizations that contacted him earlier this month in a positive attempt to “call him in instead of calling him out.” DaBaby was said to be “genuinely engaged” throughout the conversation according to all parties involved, which eventually led to him apologizing for his Rolling Loud rant earlier this summer where he made vile comments towards those with HIV/AIDS and gay men.
Organizations that took part in the meeting included the Black AIDS Institute, GLAAD, Positive Women’s Network, Transinclusive Group, and the Southern AIDS Coalition. Marnina Miller, a member of the latter, told TMZ that DaBaby could set a positive example through his willingness to grow from the negative experience and by showing interest in attending the meeting in the first place.

“During our meeting, DaBaby was genuinely engaged, apologized for the inaccurate and hurtful comments he made about people living with HIV, and received our personal stories and the truth about HIV and its impact on Black and LGBTQ communities with deep respect.
We appreciate that he openly and eagerly participated in this forum of Black people living with HIV, which provided him an opportunity to learn and to receive accurate information.”
