DaBaby claims he lost his Burger King endorsement due to offensive comments
 A year after making homophobic remarks on stage at the Miami Music Festival, the rapper reflected on how it affected his career, particularly his touring schedule. Following the outcry, he was removed from various festival lineups, while his colleagues, including Dua Lipa, Madonna, and Questlove, criticized his views.

"I'm like a fu**in' household name in other people's eyes," he said in an interview with the "Full Send Podcast."

His bank account suffered as well. For the first time, he revealed that his "hurtful and triggering" statements cost him a Burger King sponsorship agreement.

"I had my own Burger King meal. Many people are unaware of this. "It was called the Jonathan Kirk Dish," he recalled, referring to the fast-food meal named after his given name. "I shot a commercial and everything for it." They even put my name on the package."

However, it was canceled in the aftermath of his inflammatory statements. "That's when all the drama and nonsense started."

DaBaby's "Keep It Real Meal" was never sold in shops. Instead, Burger King collaborated with other superstars, such as Nelly and Anitta, to create their own dishes that featured their real names rather than their stage identities.

DaBaby also disclosed during the interview that he was paid $300,000 for his appearance on Dua Lipa's "Levitating (Remix)."

He is now working on Baby on Baby 2, the follow-up to his 2019 debut Baby on Baby, which will be released in early August. "This is the most I've paid attention to certain music," he stated.
