1:34 PM PT -- A rep for DaBaby tells us the rapper wasn't dropped from the festival because of his homophobic comments. The rep says he pulled out of the festival months ago when events were being canceled because of COVID.
The festival had promoted DaBaby as a performer as recently as 7/14, but the rep says that was solely a mistake made by the festival, the rapper was already out.
DaBaby's social calendar for mid-September just opened up ... 'cause he's been dropped from a music festival across the pond.
The rapper was originally slated to perform at Parklife 2021 in Manchester, England where he was supposed to be one of the headliners ... along with Megan Thee Stallion and Young Thug. But, that's not the case anymore.
You can see DaBaby's name -- which used to practically be front and center -- has now been removed from the lineup card on the festival's website.
It was just 2 weeks ago when the festival was proudly showing off its lineup on Instagram, featuring DB. They seemed pretty excited about it ... with the caption saying, "PARKLIFE 2021 🔥 TWO MONTHS TO GO 🙏🏼."
The excitement over DB headlining the event has quickly dissipated following his controversial comments at the Rolling Loud Festival. And, his removal from Parklife is just the latest in a series of dominos falling.
As we've reported ... the clothing company, Boohoo, stopped working with DaBaby soon after the ignorant comments about HIV/AIDS. Sure, he attempted an "apology," but only made things worse.
Dua Lipa's just one of the many stars who were horrified by the comments. In fact ... her collab with DaBaby -- the "Levitating" remix -- has reportedly been removed from multiple Apple Music playlists.
