English singer and songwriter Dua Lipa spoke out Tuesday after American rapper Da Baby’s controversial comments during his performance Sunday at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami.

Da Baby had instructed the crowd to put up their cell phone lights and then said “if you didn’t show up today with HIV/AIDS or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that will make you die in two to three weeks.”

The comments were viewed as a direct jab at the LGBTQ community and left many confused by the motive for the comments.

Dua Lipa was brought into the controversy because of the remix of her song with Da Baby “Levitating,” which peaked at No. 2 in May on the Billboard Charts. As fans called out the comments and Dua Lipa, she took to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday to ensure fans she not only disagreed with his statement but that it was important for everyone to work together in the fight against HIV/AIDS. 

“I’m surprised and horrified at DaBaby’s comments, I really don’t recognize this as the person I worked with. I know my fans know where my heart lies and that I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS," Lipa said. 

On Monday, Da Baby went on Instagram Live seemingly failed to clarify his comments and likely further angered the LGBTQ community with his reasoning. He said it was not about being homophobic but rather “a call to action” and that his fans are not “nasty” or junkies” who “don’t got [Expletive] AIDS.”
