Jon Gruden abruptly resigned Monday as the head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders after more offensive emails were reported.

Gruden told the team he was resigning on Monday after more offensive emails surfaced. In one email, Gruden reportedly referred to Joe Biden in 2012 as a "nervous clueless pu**y".

On Monday night, Gruden released a statement, saying:

"I have resigned as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. I love the Raiders and do not want to be a distraction. Thank you to all the players, coaches, staff, and fans of Raider Nation. I'm sorry, I never meant to hurt anyone."

In a previously leaked email that was sent in 2011, Gruden said NFLPA President DeMaurice Smith had "lips the size of Michelin tires".

After the email leaked last week, Gruden apologized for his "insensitive remarks" about Smith. He claimed he was frustrated over the 2011 NFL lockout. He further explained that he often referred to "liars" as "rubber lips".

In other emails, Gruden allegedly used homophobic and sexist language to refer to Michael Sam, the first openly ghey NFL player, and female NFL officials.

The emails were sent between 2010 and 2012 and came to light as part of a workplace misconduct investigation into the Washington Football Team.

Gruden was in the fourth year of a 10-year, $100 million contract he signed with the Raiders in 2018.

He previously coached the Oakland Raiders from 1998-2001.

Boosie Badazz had a predictable reaction to Lil Nas X's pregnancy photos in PEOPLE magazine.

The "Old Town Road" rapper strapped on a prosthetic belly to symbolize the birth of his "baby" on Sept. 17.

Boosie didn't hold back in his response to the 22-year-old:

"NAS X WTF U JUST DONT STOP. I THINK HES GOING TO TURN AROUND N SUCK ONE OF HIS BACK GROUND DANCERS D-CK ON NATIONAL TV #protectyours #godturninoverinhisgrave."

The 38-year-old Baton Rouge native is virulently anti-LGBT - and LNX is his favorite target.

In July, Boosie called LNX a "fa**ot" and promised to "beat up" the 22-year-old rapper on sight after LNX filmed a nude scene with prison inmates in his "Industry Baby" music video.

Boosie defended his hateful remarks during a sit down with the Breakfast Club.

"I just be feeling like sometimes I gotta speak up because, as far as straight people in the world, you don't have any opinion... If you say anything, 'I'm straight, I like women,' it's vulgar. You can't brag on really smashing or your sexuality anymore."

Boosie also predicted there will be not be any straight Black boys in 10 years.

Twitter users reacted to Boosie's homophobic comments.

DaBaby clapped back at "cry babies" during his first performance since his headline-grabbing homophobic outburst at the Rolling Loud music festival last month.

The 29-year-old rapper was humbled after NY radio station Hot 97 allowed him to perform at its Summer Jam festival at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on Sunday, August 22.

A plethora of summer music festivals canceled the outspoken rapper's bookings after he uttered anti-HIV and anti-LGBT+ insults at Rolling Loud.

Before DaBaby took to the stage, a pre-recorded video was shown in which he thanked Hot 97 for letting him "to share my gift, share my blessing with y'all out here live on this stage amongst all the chaos and all the backlash."

"They accepted my sincerity and all my apologies when I said I never, ever meant to offend anybody or say anything to make anybody feel any type of way live on that stage a few weeks ago.

"Hot 97 was also willing to stick they neck out on the line, willing to go against all odds with everything going on out here in the world, and still allow me to come out here on this stage and utilize they platform to help the world move forward."

After DaBaby hit the stage, he took the opportunity to apologize once again to the LGBT+ community:

"I never in my life meant to offend anybody, you know, and I apologize... that ain't even how I rock.

"But check this out, other than the people that was truly offended, I feel like the rest of y'all motherf**kers are being cry babies."

His remarks neatly segued into "Cry Baby" - his hit collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion.

The curvaceous rapper (pictured far right) says all people are "equal" and calls for more to be done to stop the spread of hate toward LGBT+ people.

Speaking about her LGBTQ fans, Saweetie tells PEOPLE:

"I think that it's important that we all respect each other. We all bleed the same. We're all human beings. I was raised in a household that believes in respecting everyone, no matter who they are, no matter what they do, because at the end of the day, we're all equal.

"We all need to call out what we're uncomfortable with. We need to call out what we stand for and for what we believe is right."

The rapper's growing popularity landed her a corporate sponsorship and her own Saweetie Meal from McDonald's.

Saweetie's comments come after DaBaby deleted his apology that his publicist wrote to the LGBT+ community on his Instagram page.

The post read:

"I want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I knew education on this is important. Love to all. God bless."

The rapper was widely criticized for his original comments about HIV and AIDS. He has lost millions in endorsements and summer festival bookings.

DaBaby said on stage:

"If you didn't show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually-transmitted diseases, that'll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cell phone lighter up...

"Fellas, if you ain't sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cell phone lighter up."

50 Cent is confident the world will forget DaBaby's homophobic rant in Miami, and welcome him back with open arms.

The pint-sized rapper further angered LGBT+ groups by deleting his publicist's apology to the LGBT+ community from his Instagram page.

But rapper 50 Cent doesn't believe DaBaby's homophobic rant is enough to cancel his rap career.

In an interview with E!'s Nightly Pop, Fiddy said DaBaby just doesn't realize he's a rap superstar who should watch what he says.

The 46-year-old rap veteran said DaBaby could benefit from media training.

"He just transitioned from being in that pool that everyone's in, as a rap artist. They didn't notify him that he's turning into a superstar. There's nobody that tells you, 'now you're being held to these standards that are mainstream standards that you can't say things, you can't do these different things.'

"He's just two years into his career, there's no artist development, no A&R... and he's definitely had no media training."

More music festivals have dropped DaBaby after he again refused to meet with LGBT+ and HIV/AIDS groups to develop a comprehensive anti-stigma campaign.

The 29-year-old rapper sparked outrage by uttering anti-HIV, anti-ghey comments at Rolling Loud in Miami.

On Friday, Aug. 6, it was announced singer Ne-Yo will replace DaBaby in the lineup at the Can't Wait Live concert in Philadelphia next week.

Multiple LGBT+ and HIV/AIDS organizations have contacted the rapper's reps to schedule a day they can meet to "educate" him about homosexuality and HIV/AIDS.

GLAAD published an open letter to DaBaby on its website:

"We heard your inaccurate and harmful comments at Rolling Loud and have read your Instagram apology. However, at a time when HIV continues to disproportionately impact Black Americans and queer and transgender people of color, a dialogue is critical. We must address the miseducation about HIV, expressed in your comments, and the impact it has on various communities.

"You can be a powerful and influential voice, especially across your home base in the South, where the Black community's needs are notoriously under-represented across every public spectrum. We encourage you to share this information with your fans and followers, and become an agent of truth and change."

However, DaBaby has reportedly declined to meet with the groups.

DaBaby has lost lucrative gigs at Lollapalooza music festival, Governors Ball, Parklife, Day N Vegas, ACL Fest, and the iHeartRadio Music Festival, among others.

LGBT+ groups fear DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, sabotaged their efforts to raise HIV awareness and increase LGBT+ visibility in the Black community.

In a new video on Monday, Boosie lashed out at the cancel culture on social media.

"It's sad how y'all tryna force this gay stuff on the world. It's sad how y'all tryna ban artists. Y'all sad, bro, it's sad, bro. In 10 years, it ain't gonna be normal for a kid to be straight. It's sad, bro. Y'all tryna force it on these kids, bro. Pushing it on the artists, pushing it on all the biggest artists. You know why? Cause' the kids love those artists. You attacking these kids."

He continued: "God doing backflips right now."

In one meme, DaBaby (left) and Boosie (right) join LNX in an imagined scene from his "Industry Baby" music video.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., was banned on IG this week after posting a photo of a naked woman sitting on a piano.

The 38-year-old Louisiana native shaded Lil Nas X and made vulgar references about his homosexual lifestyle.

He directed his anger toward the head of Instagram, Adam Mosseri, who appeared on The Breakfast Club radio show.

Boosie blamed racism and asked Mosseri why other influencers who post nudity on the platform are not banned.

On his Instagram live, he attacked Lil Nas X and claimed that the photo sharing platform protects LNX who dances naked with men but doesn't get banned.

He also defended fellow rapper DaBaby who angered LGBT+ groups with his anti-ghey rant at Rolling Loud.

"If I was DaBaby, I'll tell them f**k y'all," said Boosie.

"Lil Nas, they want to perform naked for charity... That's the most disrespectful [expletive] in the world.... They got kids who watch that sh*t," he said, before urging LNX to give head on IG.

Boosie called LNX a "fa**ot" and said he would "beat up" the 22-year-old rapper.

The video went viral on Twitter, where LGBT+ users who were busy canceling rapper DaBaby have now focused their energy on canceling Boosie.

LGBT+ groups say rapper DaBaby has gone too far with his offensive music video titled "Giving What It's Supposed to Give."

DaBaby directed the video himself because he couldn't find a director willing to take the heat.

The new video, released on Wednesday, July 28, appears to reference his controversial anti-ghey, anti-HIV rant at Rolling Loud festival in Miami on Sunday, July 25.

The 29-year-old Capricorn urged concertgoers who didn't have HIV or Aids or "any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that'll make you die in two or three weeks" to "put your cellphone light in the air".

He also urged men to raise their cellphone lights if they didn't give oral sex to other men in the parking lot.

His comments sparked backlash from stars including his "Levitating" collaborator Dua Lipa and gay rights activist Sir Elton John.

His upcoming concerts were canceled and BooHooMAN USA dropped him as a celebrity sponsor.

DaBaby has issued two apologies, asking LGBT+ members to give him the same freedom of expression that they expect.

In his new music video, "Giving What It's Supposed to Give," the rapper holds up a sign that reads "AIDS" while being berated by two homosexual males. He lowers the sign, pulls out a gun and shoots both males.

In another scene, he is pleasured by a white woman in a kitchen while he raps, "That head is giving what it's supposed to give."

The video ends with the words "Don't Fight Hate With Hate" in rainbow colors, alongside: "My apologies for being me the same way you want the freedom to be you."

The music video only angered LGBT+ activists, who argue that DaBaby is not remorseful or sorry for his behavior.

DaShawn Usher, GLAAD's Associate Director of Communities of Color, said in a statement:

"The rhetoric that DaBaby used is inaccurate, hurtful, and harmful to the LGBTQ community and the estimated 1.2 million Americans living with HIV. It is critical that DaBaby and his fans learn that people living with HIV today... lead long and healthy lives and cannot transmit HIV.

"While DaBaby has made haphazard attempts to 'apologize,' actions need to be taken for full accountability and changes to do better in the future. It further confirms what GLAAD reported last year in the State of HIV Stigma Study that stigma and misinformation around HIV is widespread, and there is much work to be done to educate the public, including entertainers."

LGBT+ groups have reached out to DaBaby to help create an HIV awareness and anti-stigma campaign targeting Black males.

So far, the rapper has not responded.

Elton John politely joined the public backlash against rapper DaBaby for his anti-ghey and anti-HIV rant at Rolling Loud.

The openly ghey pop icon slammed rapper DaBaby for stigmatizing HIV/AIDS survivors with his hateful speech on July 25 in Miami, Florida.

The rapper urged concertgoers who didn't have HIV or AIDS or "any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases" to "put your cellphone light in the air".

He also urged heterosexual men to raise their cellphones high if they didn't give oral sex to other males in the parking lot.

DaBaby immediately received backlash for his remarks from gay rights activists and officials, and now Sir Elton John is criticizing him for adding to "stigma and discrimination".

"We've been shocked to read about the HIV misinformation and homophobic statements made at a recent DaBaby show," he wrote on Instagram.

"This fuels stigma and discrimination and is the opposite of what our world needs to fight the AIDS epidemic.

"HIV misinformation and homophobia have no place in the music industry. We must break down the stigma around HIV and not spread it. As musicians, it's our job to bring people together."

DaBaby has now apologized twice for his verbal rampage, tweeting:

"Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y'all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody [sic]."

DaBaby is officially canceled. Several of the rapper's upcoming shows have been canceled by club promoters who don't want their venues destroyed by angry protesters.
