When Jonathan Lyndale “DaBaby” Kirk dropped his new single, Beatbox “Freestyle,” the last thing he may have expected was backlash for a throwaway rhyme at the expense of Joelle Joanie “JoJo Siwa” Siwa.

Twitterati called out the American rapper over the seemingly uncalled-for attack on the 17-year-old star. Since then, the saga has spread all over social media, with people memeing the incident.

One of the more popular internet personalities to take a stance on the incident is James Charles, who tweeted about the incident. Fans, though, are divided over the beauty guru’s opinion.

James Charle’s statement is a backhanded roast targeted at DaBaby over his decision to seemingly diss the teen star out of nowhere.

While netizens had similar reactions to the incident, many users disagreed with James Charles’ stance, stating that wordplay and using throwaway rhymes don’t necessarily mean disrespect in the rap genre.


Other users felt James Charles was commenting on a culture that he doesn’t understand, with calls for him to “stay out of it.”


DaBaby has since acknowledged the backlash and has set the record straight that he has nothing but respect and appreciation for the JoJo Siwa.

The 29-year-old posted a lengthy statement over how his daughter is a huge fan of JoJo Siwa and had many words of encouragement for the teen star.
