Elton went on to say, “There is no place for homophobes and HIV distrust in our society and industry, and as musicians we need to spread compassion and love for the most marginalized people in our communities.

The job of a musician is to bring people together. ‘

Someone commented, “Everyone is trying to downplay what Dababy said. It was out of line no matter how you look at it, “and another follower posted this:” Elton said what he said! You know it’s okay to hold black men accountable, don’t you? Nobody has the right to spit hatred and there is a lack of human decency. DABABY was wrong, period. ‘
