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.

Madonna surprised her LGBT+ fans with a live performance on top of a bar at the Boom Boom Room to kick off New York City's Pride weekend on Thursday.

Fans were stunned by Madonna's youthful appearance. She looked 10 years younger than her 62 years. Her wrinkle-free skin glowed under the hot club lights

The mom-of-6 wore a sheer see-through top and black leather shorts with a vintage Jean Paul Gautier corset for her live performance (watch the video below).

To complete her outfit, the pop icon wore a blue wig and long pink fingerless gloves.

Madonna, a vocal anti-Trumper, wore a bondage-inspired harness with the words "Not My President" in sequins on the back.

She was once investigated by the Secret Service for threatening to blow up the White House with then-President Donald Trump inside.

Madonna announced her Pride weekend performance on Instagram earlier in the day.

Madonna nearly broke the Internet when she shared an Instagram video of her son David Banda wearing a dress around their sprawling mansion on Sunday.

Madonna, 62, captioned the video, "Confidence is everything."

The 15-year-old modeled the ankle-length white designer dress, which featured black hand-painted letters by @mae_couture, as he sashayed from room-to-room.

The teenager said, "I low-key like wearing... like, it's so freeing, you know what I mean?"

Madonna's celebrity friends praised David enthusiastically in the comments section.

"Omg I Love him. Look out @naomi," wrote Debi Mazur, comparing the teen to the middle-aged supermodel.

Madonna is also mom to daughter Lourdes Leon, 24, son Rocco Ritchie, 20, daughter Mercy James, 15, and 8-year-old twins Stella and Estere whom she adopted from Malawi. Madonna adopted David from Malawi in 2006.

In a previous interview, Madonna named David as her favorite child. She seemed to suggest that David loved playing in her closet and trying on his mom's feminine things.

"What he has more than anything is focus and determination," she told British Vogue in 2019.

"I'm pretty sure he got it from me. He's the one I have the most in common with. I feel like he gets me; he has more of my DNA than any of my children so far. Let's see what happens – it's still early days for everyone."

Rumor has it that David's brother, Rocco, moved to London to live with his father to get away from his mother's influence.

When Rocco (pictured left) was 16, he took to Instagram to say that he is "so glad" he doesn't live with his mother anymore.

He made the comment after Madonna posted a video of herself, David, then-11, and Mercy, then-10, participating in a viral mannequin challenge.

"So glad I don't live there anymore," Rocco wrote.

Madonna wore cream pants, a cream vest, a paint-splattered hat and shades. While Williams kept things casual in matching denim jeans and an oversized denim jacket.

The "Material Girl" celebrated Ahlamalik's birthday last week with a touching post on social media. "Happy Birthday My Love... Thank you for opening my eyes. How can I explain how I feel? Let's get Unconscious," she wrote.

Ahlamalik and Madonna recently moved into rapper The Weeknd's Hidden Hills mansion that she purchased for $19.3 million last month.

The 12,500 sq. ft. contemporary farmhouse with nine bedrooms and eleven baths sits on three acres, and boasts a fitness studio, spa room, a home theater and a basketball court for the children.
