Celebrities and the Law
Unfortunately, some celebrities feel as if they are above the law. There are many celebrities that are involved in incident after incident. Some incidents are immediately swept under the rug, meaning that victims do not get justice for the harm that they suffered. Rapper DaBaby, specifically, has had multiple run-ins with the law. His most serious offense was his involvement in a 2019 fatal shooting, in which he was charged with carrying a concealed weapon but was found to have been acting in self defense (he was sentenced with one year of probation).
