DaBaby is catching some heat online, once again, following a video of him trying to teach some kids a lesson instead of blessing them with a donation.
DaBaby is rarely in the headlines anymore for positive stories, and unfortunately, this latest situation is no different.
The North Carolina native was captured in a video over the weekend reprimanding some kids selling candy, claiming they were overcharging for the sweets, and now, that very video has his name trending on Twitter. While some are defending his actions and the lesson he tried to teach the children, others think he handled the situation incorrectly, embarrassing the kids online and seemingly spending exorbitant amounts of money on any and everything but giving back.

As he shared the video to his Instagram Story on Sunday, DaBaby apparently wanted to teach the kids a lesson in business ethics after they tried to charge him $200 for a box of Gushers. The boys told the entertainer that their rate was $2 for each individual bag of candy, which caused DaBaby to point out that the boxes only contained 34 bags, giving them a quick tutorial.
“What’s 34 multiplied by two, my boy?” he presses them. “It ain’t $200! It’s not even $100. It’s $68.”
After that, he continued to embarrass the kids, giving them even less than $2 per bag of candy.
“You gotta use your head, you tried to play me,” he says after giving each kid just $2 in exchange for three bags of candy — $1 each for two bags of Gushers and $2 for one bag of Skittles. “I was gonna bless you anyway. You would have gotten the $200 but now you got $2. Y’all be good.”
1 . Should the kids have tried to finesse da baby ? No
2. Should da baby have gone back and handed them $200 or more after teaching them a lesson ? Yes but he doesn’t owe them anything
Both things can be true at the same time pic.twitter.com/kkhZzfsV3H

Da Baby was tryna buy some candy and bless the youngins, once they saw who he was they tried to finesse and charge him $200 for a box of candy that probably doesn’t retail for $30 and even at $2 a piece doesn’t resell for over $100. He declined. Ain’t no story there.
