Miley Cyrus wants to educate DaBaby after homophobic remarks
She's a peacemaker.
Miley Cyrus is reaching out to DaBaby after the rapper was "cancelled" online for his homophobic remarks.
Miley is offering a helping hand in educating the rapper after he made derogatory comments about HIV and AIDS.
Taking to Instagram, the singer asked that DaBaby checks his DMs, and hopes that they can learn from each other and get to an understanding about the issue.
While performing at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, DaBaby asked the crowd to raise their flashlights, as long as they weren't gay men or people who were affected by HIV/AIDS.
He has since made two apologies about the incident after numerous celebrities came out and condemned him for it, and festivals like Lollapalooza, Parklife, Austin City Limits Festival and iHeartRadio all cutting him from their line ups.
Miley took to Instagram to tell her fans they shouldn't cancel him, but instead work to educate him and help him understand the topic more.
She wrote: "As a proud and loyal member of the LGBTQIA+ community, much of my life has been dedicated to encouraging love, acceptance, and open mindedness.
"The internet can fuel a lot of hate and anger and is the nucleus of cancel culture… but I believe it can also be a place filled with education, conversation, communication and connection.

"It’s easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds. There’s no more room for diversion if we want to keep seeing progress! Knowledge is power! I know I still have so much to learn!"
DaBaby put out an apology earlier this week, directly apologising to the LGBTQ+ community for his "hurtful" comments.
He wrote on Instagram: "I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made.
"Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I know education on this is important."
