DaBaby did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.During his set at Rolling Loud last week, the rapper told the crowd, “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 pussy smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up! Fellas, if you ain’t sucking dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!”

After initially doubling down on his comments, he laterissued a formal (albeit half-hearted) apologyon social media.“Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies,” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. “But the LGBT community... I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”

The statement did little to absolve DaBaby, withas “inaccurate, hurtful, and harmful to the LGBTQ community.”Elton John, who is openly gay and a longtime advocate for those living with HIV,, writing that he was “shocked” to read about the controversy, as it “fuels stigma and discrimination and is the opposite of what our world needs to fight the AIDS epidemic.”

Madonnadescribed DaBaby’s views as “hateful”and encouraged him to “know your facts,” before spreading misinformation.“AIDs is not transmitted by standing next to someone in a crowd,” she wrote on Instagram. “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.”

So why was Limp BisKit there? Why do people keep on doing this to themselves? Why do you keep on offending people and think you can get away with it?

Rapper DaBaby Yanked From Lollapalooza Day of Scheduled Performance Over Homophobic Remarks“Lollapalooza was founded on diversity, inclusivity, respect, and love,” the festival responded. Good...he can go cry some DaBaby tears...

Actually, if they included all of his quotes in the article, I think Madonna is gleaming a little too much from his statements. He never said HIV/AIDS is transmitted by standing next to someone in a crowd. 'This for my fellas sucking d!ck in the parking lot, This for my Aunt, Carmen who died of AIDS in the Bronx, Cellphone lighters up to God...'
