The 62-year-old — who has long been an ally of the LGBTQ+ community — took to Instagram and shared a clip from the rapper's controversial Rolling Loud in Miami set with a lengthy caption.

"A message to DaBaby — if you’re going to make hateful remarks to the LGBTQ+ community about HIV/AIDS then know your facts," the "Vogue" singer schooled the 29-year-old in the caption.

"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!!!" she explained.

"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," she added.

As OK! previously reported, DaBaby asked for fans who "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." Later in the same speech, he also asked men who aren’t "sucking d**k in the parking lot" to put their cellphone lighters up.

In the same rant, DaBaby had also asked women "if your p****y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up." Madonna said that the remarks "only encourage more discrimination against women who fight daily against the oppression of living under the constraints of the Male Gaze."
