One of the musicians trying to bring about change was Megan Thee Stallion. The Grammy Award-winning artist sat down with People to share her thoughts on the DaBaby situation. In response to the comments the rapper made on stage at his Rolling Loud set, Megan said that "it is about time" that the music industry changes its attitude towards the queer community. "Representation is important," the Thot S**t artist shared with the publication. "And it is really crucial for us all to have compassion and acceptance of every human." And the H-Town Hottie wasn't the only one speaking up, she was joined by some other big names as well.

Dua Lipa, who had previously collaborated with DaBaby, took to her Instagram stories to reflect on the rapper's ignorant remarks. "I'm surprised and horrified at DaBaby's comments," the Levitating singer shared with her 70 million followers. "I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGTBQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS." Dua's sentiments were echoed by a long-time activist in the queer community, Demi Lovato, who also showed some love for Lipa in their response to the Rolling Loud controversy. "HIV is not a gay disease," the artist reposted onto their story. Hot people listen to the original version of levitating."
