By now you have most likely heard the horrifying comments made by the aging pop star, Madonna during the Women’s March in Washington, DC. Only one day had passed since President Donald Trump was sworn into office, and crazy Madonna was already willing to go all in for the kill. Luck wasn’t on her side this time, though…
Aside from using the “F-bomb” profusely at what was purportedly a family-friendly event, she also spoke of her desire to “blow up the White House” during her anti-Trump rant, comments she has since attempted to walk back as being metaphorical and un-serious.
But according to Fox News, Madonna’s effort to downplay her remarks were not enough to keep her from getting banned — not from the White House, but from the regular rotation on a popular radio station in northeast Texas.
The announcement came via a Facebook post from HITS 105FM in Texarkana, Texas, in which the station’s general manager declared Madonna’s commentary to be “un-American.”
Station manager, Terry Thomas, stated:
“Banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism. It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments.”
“If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna,” he added.
It would definitely send a message, just how big of a message it would make, however, remains unclear. They were also unsure how often Madonna songs were previously played in the regular rotation, or if people would even miss hearing them for the umpteenth time.
Billboard reached out to HITS 105 for answers, but did not immediately receive a response.
Do you think this Texas radio station was right to ban Madonna’s songs from their rotation? Comment below!
