Grammy-nominated performer DaBaby said he was misinformed about his comments on HIV/AIDS in a post, that came a day after the artist was cut from Lollapalooza’s set list.

On Monday, New York City’s Governors Ball and Day N Vegas in Las Vegas each announced the he had been dropped from their lineups as well.

Da Baby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, apologized to the LGBTQ+ community for his “hurtful and triggering” comments.

“Social media moves so fast that people want to demolish you before you even have the opportunity to grow, educate and learn from your mistakes,” he wrote. “As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me – knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance – has been challenging.”
