Young Thug will be performing in DaBaby’s slot at 9 p.m. on the Bud Light Seltzer Stage.

And G Herbo has stepped in for Young Thug’s previous 4 p.m. performance time on the T-Mobile stage.  

This comes after Madonna and Questlove blast star.

But it was the Ohio-born 29-year-old’s (born Jonathan Kirk) stance on the HIV/AIDS epidemic that truly outraged the 62-year-old Queen of Pop.

After DaBaby falsely claimed AIDS can kill people ‘in two to three weeks’ while onstage Rolling Loud in Miami on Sunday, Madonna fact checked him on Thursday.

‘If you’re going to make hateful remarks to the LGBTQ+ community about HIV/AIDS then know your facts,’ the longtime AIDS activist – who boasts 43.8M social media followers – wrote on Instagram.

‘After decades of hard won scientific research – there are 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! AIDS 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.’

Michigan-born Madge then addressed the UNC Greensboro drop-out’s sexist remarks about women’s ‘p***ies smelling like water’ and how they should ‘suck d*** in the parking lot.’ 

‘That only encourage more discrimination against women who fight daily against the oppression of living under the constraints of the male gaze,’ the seven-time Grammy winner wrote.

‘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.’

DaBaby – who boasts 43.5M social media followers – responded to Madonna by sarcastically smirking and saying via Instastory: ‘Hey Mo, don’t shake up dem t***ies!’

On Tuesday, The Tonight Show bandleader Questlove took back his dream list for an updated version of Summer of Soul, which had previously included DaBaby. 

The 50-year-old Roots drummer (born Ahmir Thompson) called the Red Light Green Light rapper an ‘idiot’ and ‘wrong’ and ‘not cool at all.’

‘Somebody Gotta say it: Homophobia/Transphobia/Xenophobia/Misogyny/Racism – this should go w/o saying is morally wrong,’ Questlove wrote on Instagram

‘That was f***ed up & wrong. I had to say something. Again I’m not doing this for “what do you want a cookie bro w your love ye one another posts?” Black people already have a code about publicly criticizing so I’ll admit I was slow to do this because I mean he don’t know me from Adam. So this will prolly get marked as “old hater” territory.’

Unsurprisingly, DaBaby – who slapped a female fan last year – responded to the five-time Grammy winner on Thursday with more bravado and crying laughing emojis. 

‘I ain’t even tryna be funny when I say… I do not know who dis n**** is dawg and do not care bout loosing you as a fan my boy LOL @questlove,’ the famous father-of-two wrote via Instastory.

‘You or any other n**** who wanna play follow the leader. This superstar you was a fan of is stand up n****, yeen never seen one of these huh?’

DaBaby added: ‘These n****s really think they gone influence people to stop f***in w/the influence. They go crazy bout what I say not yall. I got da influence and the nuts n****. Y’all n****s cheerleaders.’ 

On Tuesday, the Ball If I Want To rapper issued a formal apology, tweeting that he had ‘no intentions on offending anybody’ and acknowledging what he said was ‘insensitive.’

This, a day after DaBaby doubled down in his self-directed music video for Giving What It’s Supposed to Give depicting him holding an AIDS sign and oral sex from a redhead.

DaBaby has also been blasted by the likes of Elton John, Dua Lipa, Demi Lovato, and Laverne Cox.

There are reportedly 38M people living with HIV, and the Reagan Administration largely ignored the crisis until 1987 when nearly 21K people had already perished.
