Rumors started circulating online after a video of a man performing oral sex on another man went viral, with people claiming that the Grammy-winning rapper was one of the men featured. But now, Lil Baby is publicly clarifying that he is not the man in the video.
The original viral video showed a Black man with braids wearing a black Los Angeles Lakers shirt and performing oral sex while his face was covered with a caption and emojis reading, “Nah lil baby (crying emoji, thumbs down emoji).”
The man in the clip doesn’t look very much like Lil Baby, but because it is low quality, his face was covered, and people still love to make fun of people for being gay, the rumor that it was Lil Baby in the clip spread like wildfire.
Now, Lil Baby has addressed the rumors and the video.
“Y’all gotta stop using my name and likeness when y’all get bored,” he wrote in the post. “Then the extremes mfs go to for clout is sick!! Ain’t no mystery in my history on NO LEVEL. This is my last time addressing any kind of dumbass click bait. TF is wrong wit y’all.”

While it was already clear by looking at the face of the man in the video that it is not Lil Baby, his statement on the matter makes it an open-and-shut case.
Even if it was him, a leaked sex tape should never be what forces someone to come out. Spreading someone’s sex tape without their consent is always wrong.
