It looks like DaBaby might not be so sorry after all.

On August 2, DaBaby posted a statement on Instagram officially apologizing (sort of) for his homophobic remarks at last month's Rolling Loud Miami festival. Now, that apology's been deleted.

In the previously available statement, DaBaby had apologized to the LGBTQ+ community "for the hurtful and triggering comments I made." The rapper also said he appreciated those "who came to [him] with kindness" in the wake of the public fallout.

DaBaby seemingly posted the apology in response to his removal from a number of festivals, including Governors Ball and Lollapalooza, where his headlining slot was filled by Young Thug. Day N Vegas, Austin City Limits Music Festival, Music Midtown and iHeartRadio Music Festival eventually followed suit.

The apology was deleted on the same day that Kanye West appears to have removed the DaBaby-featuring "Nah Nah Nah" remix from streaming services. It looks like the 2020 single is no longer available on Spotify, Apple Music or Tidal, with only an instrumental mix remaining. So far, there's been no official explanation of the track's disappearance.

It's another exhausting series of twists in the case of DaBaby vs. DaPeople, and with the way things are going, it's unlikely to be the last.
