DaBaby criticized for forcibly trying to kiss fan
Jonathan Kirk made headlines this month after he was accused of trying to kiss a female fan without her consent. A video also went viral where netizens called him creepy and others joked that his fans did not want a kiss from him.
The video clip featured Kirk interacting with his fans outside a venue. He then placed his hands on either side of a woman's face and seemed to be leaning in to kiss her.
Kirk's lips were puckered and the fan was spotted attempting to turn her head away to avoid him. He stumbled after trying to kiss her and the video was cut off. The video was posted on the Instagram page The Shade Room, and since then, Kirk has been continuously criticized on social media.
Kirk later played down the incident and uploaded pictures from the same venue to his Instagram stories showing him hugging his fans.
