Dua Lipa has added her voice to the criticism of rapper DaBaby after his seemingly homophobic comments on stage at the weekend.
DaBaby, who features on Lipa's track Levitating, has been widely criticised for his comments last weekend, where he told audience members to put their phone lights in the air – unless they were HIV-positive or were gay men who performed sex acts in car parks.
Writing on Instagram, Dua Lipa said: "I'm surprised and horrified at DaBaby's comments.
"I really don't recognise 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."
As well as seemingly singling out those suffering from the virus, DaBaby also incorrectly asserted that it will "make you die in two or three weeks".
Medication has been around for decades that enables those living with HIV to live long, safe and healthy lives.

The rapper, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, responded to the criticism earlier in the week, saying: "What I do at a live show is for the audience at the live show.
"It'll never translate correctly to somebody looking at a little five, six-second clip from their goddamn crib on their phone. It just don't work like that.
"Because, regardless of what y'all m************ are talking about and how the internet twisted up my m************ words, me and all my fans at the show, the gay ones and the straight ones, we turned the f*** up."
He continued to say his gay fans "don't got f******* AIDS", adding: "They got class".
