DaBaby is currently a trending Twitter topic after the South Carolina rapper decided to name-check 17-year-old YouTube sensation JoJo Siwa during a recent freestyle.
In the now viral clip, DaBaby spits, “Turn me up n-gga/You gonna see why you a bitch/Jojo Siwa (Bitch)!”
The lyric immediately drew confusion, especially because Siwa’s squeaky clean image is something she’s worked hard to attain and what makes her so popular among millions of young kids
Siwa, who got her start on the reality television shows Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition and Dance Moms, signed with Nickelodeon in 2017 and has won numerous Kid Choice Awards, racking up millions of YouTube views in the process.
The Omaha, Nebraska native revealed she was a member of the LBGQT+ community in January, earning her even more admiration from young people who were perhaps ashamed of their sexuality and didn’t know how to come out.
Par for course, Twitter erupted with reactions to DaBaby’s seemingly misplaced use of the word “bitch,” simultaneously creating meme gold. Some pointed out Siwa is two inches taller and could easily take the 5’7″ rapper, while others warned of an impending diss track possibly titled “Rainbows, Candy & Murders.”
Check out some of the reactions below.
