"A message to DaBaby — if you're going to make hateful remarks to the LGBTQ+ community about HIV/AIDS then know your facts," Madonna wrote on Instagram on July 29 alongside a video of DaBaby's homophobic rant. "After decades of hard won scientific research — there are now 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."
In her caption, she also touched on the rapper's sexist remarks about women. "And your sexist remarks about Ladies who's p*ssies 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," she added. "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."
