US rapper Lil Baby has vehemently refuted online rumors linking him to a viral gay sex video. The video in question, which surfaced earlier this week, features a pixelated, screen-recorded clip of a man engaging in a sexual act with another man. While some online users claimed that the man in the video resembled Lil Baby, a closer look without the caption covering his face confirmed it was not the Grammy Award-winning rapper.
Despite this clarification, some fans of Lil Baby, known for his hit single “Yes Indeed” featuring Drake, continued to perpetuate the false claim. Many resorted to sharing hurtful memes and homophobic jokes about the artist. In response to the growing discourse surrounding the video, Lil Baby took to Instagram Stories to set the record straight.
In a stern message, the 28-year-old rapper urged people to stop using his name and likeness for clout. He expressed his frustration with those who engage in such behavior, stating, “Ain’t no mystery in my history on NO LEVEL. This is my last time addressing any kind of dumb ass clickbait.”
Lil Baby, previously in a relationship with model and TV personality Jayda Cheaves, shares a four-year-old son with her. Earlier this month, he also denied any romantic involvement with fellow rapper Chrisean Rock, asserting that he does not engage in trolling and requested that his name not be attached to such baseless claims.
