"Thank you to the fans who continue to speak up for what is right. Along with you, we will continue to use our platform for good," they ended.

The decision to no longer have DaBaby perform comes a day after the Chicago music festival Lollapalooza cut him hours before his scheduled show.

The heat comes after DaBaby took the stage at Rolling Loud in Miami and decided to go on a disgusting rant about the LGBTQ+ community.

On stage, DaBaby 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.”

In the days since the remarks, the 29-year-old rapper has continued to dig himself a deeper hole. He took to Instagram Live to say he meant no harm to his gay fans but said he didn't have any fans living with HIV/AIDs because his fans weren't "junkies."

The backlash against DaBaby has been swift. His collaborator Dua Lipa spoke out against him calling the comments "horrifying." It was only a matter of time before Elton John and Madonna, both who have championed gay rights their own life, came out swinging against DaBaby's ignorance.

Madonna told DaBaby in a scathing Instagram post, "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 ended, "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."
