After Madonna made terroristic threats about blowing up the White House at the “Women’s March” in Washington, D.C., a radio station in Texas has banned her from adorning their airwaves, citing her ‘un-American sentiments.’
“Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she screeched at the event.
The radio station in Texarkana, Texas, stated henceforth they will be “banning all Madonna songs,” a decision they say “is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism.”
Via Gateway Pundit:
Texarkana radio station KTTY-FM 105.1 (HITS 105FM) announced Tuesday the station would no longer play songs by aging pop star Madonna because of her controversial speech at Saturday’s liberal Women’s March in Washington in which she said she “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” The station manager called Madonna “un-American” in a press release about the banning.
HITS 105FM is a ‘classic hits’ station that plays hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Madonna rose to fame in the 1980s.
Not that the aged musical icon is wanting for money, but the radio station explained that they have no desire to pay royalties on songs to such an ‘un-American’ individual.
“It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments,” they said in a social media statement.
Many comments on the post called out the station for seeking publicity, citing their lack of followers on Facebook.
One feminist in particular claimed the station manager banned Madonna because the comments were made at a women’s event, and that “he” apparently didn’t like that. A statement that backfired immediately when it was learned the station manager was actually a woman.
Still, others supported the radio station’s decision.
“Good for you,” one listener stated. “Madonna’s statement in this age of bombings in Boston and Paris and everywhere else was in incredibly bad taste.”
“I support your action banning Madonna,” another wrote. “She is an embarrassment to women.”
Well, now we have learned that one music legend won’t be rushing to Madonna’s defense anytime soon. Cyndi Lauper, who supported the anti-Trump women’s march said that Madonna’s terroristic threat didn’t serve “our purpose because anger is not better than clarity and humanity.”
