Madonna Banned from Texas Radio Station Following DC Women's March Comments
— PopCrush (@PopCrush) January 25, 2017
Madonna has been banned from a Texas radio station following her controversial comments at the Women's March on Washington.
HITS 105 in Texarkana, Texas, made the announcement in response to the singer saying she has "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House."
The station said Madonna's songs would be removed from the station "indefinitely." In a statement, the station's general manager Terry Thomas said:
"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."
Madonna spoke before an estimated crowd of 500,000 people Saturday in Washington, D.C. She repeatedly used curse words in addition to making her comment about the White House, which has sparked some to call for her arrest.
