Madonna and musician Questlove joined the ranks of celebrities and VIPs condemning rapper DaBaby for his insensitive anti-HIV rant at Rolling Loud festival.
Madonna said she plans to "pray" over DaBaby's "ignorance" in response to his offensive comments about people living with HIV at Miami's Rolling Loud festival on Sunday.
She shared a clip of the 29-year-old's controversial speech on Instagram, in which the "canceled" rapper told the audience:
"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 cellphone lighter up.
"Ladies, if your p**sy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain't sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up."
The 62-year-old star captioned the post:
"If you're going to make hateful remarks to the LGBTQ+ community about HIV/AIDS then know your facts: After decades of hard-won scientific research - there are lifesaving medicines available to children born with HIV, to people who contract HIV through blood transfusions, dirty needles or exchange of bodily fluids.
"I want to put my cellphone lighter up and pray for your ignorance, No one dies of AIDS in 2 or 3 weeks anymore. Thank God. And your sexist remarks about Ladies who's p**sies need to smell like water only encourage more discrimination against women who fight daily against the oppression of living under the constraints of the Male Gaze.
"People like you are the reason we are still living in a world divided by fear. All Human beings should be treated with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, sexual preference or religious beliefs. AMEN.(sic)"
Responding to Madonna's criticism, DaBaby wrote on his Instagram Stories: "Hey Mo, don't shake up dem t**ties!"
Meanwhile, The Roots drummer Questlove, 50, also blasted DaBaby, calling him an "idiot".
"Somebody Gotta say it: Homophobia/Transphobia/Xenophobia/Misogyny/Racism - this should go w/o saying is morally wrong," Questlove wrote on Instagram.
"That was f**ked up & wrong. I had to say something. Again I'm not doing this for 'what do you want a cookie bro w your love ye one another posts?' Black people already have a code about publicly criticizing so I'll admit I was slow to do this because I mean he don't know me from Adam. So this will prolly get marked as 'old hater' territory."
As predicted, DaBaby replied to Questlove:
"I ain't even tryna be funny when I say... I do not know who dis n***a is dawg and do not care bout loosing you as a fan my boy LOL @questlove."
DaBaby's upcoming shows have been canceled and clothier BooHooMAN dropped him as a celebrity sponsor.
The industry is outraged over DaBaby's rant. They say, DaBaby - whose real name is Jonathan Kirk - sabotaged their efforts to raise HIV awareness and increase LGBT+ visibility in the Black community.
They fear many down low rappers will slip back undercover due to DaBaby's homophobic rant.
DaBaby hasn't responded to their requests to create an HIV awareness and anti-stigma campaign targeting Black males.
