Miley Cyrus is making a very public attempt at helping DaBaby as the backlash against the rapper continues to grow over his ignorant comments about those living with HIV/AIDS.

The pop star reached out to the 29-year-old rapper on Instagram via direct message. She wrote a note to her fans, many of who are a part of the LGBTQ+ community, explaining her decision.

Miley continued, "The internet can fuel a lot of hate & anger and is the nucleus of cancel culture .. but I believe it can be a place filled with education, conversation, communication & connection."

She believes it's easier to "cancel someone" than to "find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hears and minds. There's no more room for division if we want to keep seeing progress. Knowledge is power!"

The decision to reach out to DaBaby is interesting given the majority of the industry has turned its back on him.

The controversy started after the rapper took the stage at Rolling Loud in Miami and decided to rail against those living with HIV/AIDs. He said, "If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of the deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up.”

In the past couple of days, everyone from Elton John to Madonna has spoken out against the rapper. DaBaby's collaborator Dua Lipa even called his rant "disgusting."

As Radar previously reported, DaBaby has not only been trashed by fellow entertainers but he has been dropped by countless music festivals. Sources told Billboard, the rapper had originally agreed to film an apology video but then backed out at the last minute.

Earlier this week, DaBaby posted his latest apology reading, "" want to apologize to the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and triggering comments I made. Again, I apologize for my misinformed comments about HIV/AIDS and I knew education on this is important. Love to all. God bless."
