Madonna Clears Up Women's March Comments About Blowing Up The White House

Madonna Clears Up Women's March Comments About Blowing Up The White House

Madonna has taken to social media to clarify some of her recent remarks.

The 58-year-old entertainer gave a speech during the Women’s March in Washington D.C. in which she told the crowd that she’s “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

She’s now clearing up those comments.

“Yesterday’s Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience,” Madonna wrote on Instagram. “I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it’s important people hear and understand my speech in it’s entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.”

She continued, “My speech began with ‘I want to start a revolution of love.’ ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world.”

“I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt,” Madonna continued. “However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love.
It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting ‘we choose love’. 🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸 #revoltutionoflove♥️#revolutionoflove♥️***”

FYI: Madonna is wearing a Mackage coat.

    Not when she makes terrorist threats.

  • imstilrit

    She cleared that up. Leave her alone, she’s a celeb.

  • Mercyneal

    She sure was promoting violence yesterday which is why it has been reported that the Secret Service is investigating. Also, she’s almost 60. She has GOT TO STOP talking like a teenager

    “wildly out of context.”

    Riiiight, like you couldn’t anticipate the meaning and how it would be perceived?

  • Joy

    Trump said several times: “Why do we have nukes if we’re not going to use them?” That’s a terrorist threat.

    Troll

  • SquidBillie

    Stretching it a bit much? That was not a direct threat, hers was. Go back to school. Better yet, don’t respond to this, because I won’t bother reading it.

  • Joy

    Hypocrite.

  • MHR

    There’s nothing to clear up! LOL are really back in the Bush era? How ironic that people up in arms are the very same people who voted AGAINST “Political Correctness”

  • DEADP00L

    She turned it all into about her. There is your typical celebrity ‘activism’. instead of talking about the actual march everyone is talking about Madonna talking about blowing up the white house.

    How could she be THAT stupid?! She gave them EXACTLY what they wanted and she has the gall to claim she cares about womens rights… NEVER invite her to speak for anybody EVER again. It was such a beautiful moment, and she compromised it.

    I hate her so much now. Why didnt she speak the same way she had when she was given an award?! I was screaming NO NO NO! When she started ranting like that….I am still shocked.

  • Michelle Bowden Lonie

    Completely irresponsible of her to say such a thing!!! She wasn’t taken “wildly out of context”! We heard exactly what she said…you can’t back pedal now! You don’t speak of having violent, terroristic thoughts and then say but I won’t do it…grow up already Madonna! If you promote so much love and unity, why would you even “think” about blowing up our White House full of innocent workers…including the women you are protesting for, never have really cared for her and age isn’t making her any more mature or appealing and she does NOT represent THIS woman in any way, shape or form! Shame on her, glad that Texas radio station banned her music…hope more follow in their footsteps!

  • Alphonso de Barbo

    Does the tragic old cow actually know what a metaphor is??? She’s back-tracking on her comment because she knows she looks and sounds ridiculous!
