Here's what the songstress had to say in response to the upsetting speech...
On Tuesday, Dua took to Instagram to share a statement that addressed the controversy.
She posted the text to her Instagram story: "I'm surprised and horrified at DaBaby's comments. I really don't recognise this as the person I worked with."
The 'Love Again' singer has been a long-standing ally of the LGBTQ+ community, with many of her releases being considered anthems to queer people.
The 25-year-old star further cemented that her support is with the community.
She continued: "I know my fans know where my heart lies and I stand 100% with the LGBTQ community. We need to come together to fight the stigma and ignorance around HIV/AIDS."
