Queen of Pop Madonna adds her name to the growing list of detractors royally slamming embattled rapper DaBaby for his homophobic comments at ‘Rolling Loud’ Sunday (July 25).
As we previously reported, the emcee (born Jonathan Kirk) has been embroiled in controversy since he took to the concert festival stage to publicly denounce men who “suck d*ck in parking lots’ and those who ‘showed up with AIDS that’ll make [them] die in 2-3 weeks.” His statements were met with fury and shock, much of which has led to lost endorsements and slams from fellow celebrities and LGBTQ+ allies like Elton John, Dua Lipa, Anitta, Demi Lovato, and many more.
Now, the Material Girl – a Pop star who has long made loud her advocacy for AIDS-related causes over her nearly 40-year career – has a few words Kirk. See them inside:

Taking to Instagram Thursday night (July 29), Madonna didn’t bite her tongue when she weighed in on DaBaby’s debacle.
The caption reads:
“A message to DaBaby – 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 life saving medicines available to children born with HIV, to people who contract HIV through blood transfusions, dirty needles or exchange of bodily fluids. These new ARV’s can keep a person with AIDS alive for the rest of their lives!!! AID’s is not transmitted by standing next to someone in a crowd.
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 pussies 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. @dababy.”
Ouch! As of time reported, he’s yet to respond to her message.
