Popular rapper DaBaby has been reported to have apologized to a woman after he was caught on tape slapping the said woman inside a night club.
The video of DaBaby slapping the said woman went viral on social media, as the video showed the rapper slapping the woman as he walked to the stage at the Whiskey North in Tampa. The crowd turned on DaBaby after the incident and the show was cancelled.
While no formal legal charges have been reported against DaBaby, reports have it that the alleged victim spoke to police saying DaBaby smacked the wrong person. She refused medical attention on scene and officers did not see any visible marks.
The rapper has been addressing the issue on his social media, where he posted a lengthy video on his Instagram saying:
“I do sincerely apologize. I’m very sorry that there was a female on the other end of that flashlight.”
He added, “Keep in mind, I couldn’t see you because you had the flash this close to me … it’s no problem.” The rapper claims he had no idea who it was because the woman was very close to him with her phone flash shining at him.
DaBaby says a lot of people had flashed on him but not as close as her. He added, ““it’s a well-known fact, male or female, I would have responded the same exact way, “said the rapper.
He explained, “I wish you would have given me the same respect in return. You did not give me the same respect in return baby. All you had to do was zoom in. zoom in. that easy .. c’mon baby. Why you do that.”
The rapper said he doesn’t want this to happen in the future and will be working on it. He asks his fans to respect him and he’ll respect them in return.
He told the woman to reach out to his people and he will take care of her. She has yet to be identified.
