Previously, news surfaced that DaBaby slapped a woman while he was passing through a crowd at an afterparty, after the woman could be seen hitting him in his eye with her phone. The rapper was upset at the situation and offered $10,000 to whoever could identify the woman so he could get his lawyer on the situation. Now, DaBaby has taken to IG again to apologize to the woman for even slapping her in the first place.
DaBaby said “I do sincerely apologize. I do. I’m very sorry that there was a female on the other end of that flashlight on their phone… But you know, keep in mind, I couldn’t see you because you got the flash this close to me. Which is OK, it’s no problem… But fans—how many people know how to zoom in? Just zoom in instead of popping me in the motherf**kin’ eye with the phone. But I do apologize that there was a female on the other end… I think by this time, you know it’s a well known fact that male or female, I would’ve responded the same exact way.” He then offered to fly the woman out so he could have a convo with her in person and apologize to her face.
