Madonna Boycotted By Texas Radio Station After Anti-Trump Remarks

TEXARKANA, TX (CelebrityAccess) — Pop star Madonna's comments during the Women’s March on Washington, D.C., on Saturday have earned her a boycott on a Texas radio station.

According to Newsweek, Terry Thomas, the general manager of Texarkana-based station Hits 105, described Madonna's comments as "un-American", stating:

“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.”

The station's decision to boycott Madonna came in the wake of remarks made during the Women's March where she suggested that she had “thought a lot about blowing up the White House” after Trump was elected.

Since making the statement, the singer has tried to add some context to the comment, taking to Instagram to clarify her intent:

“I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it’s important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.” – Staff Writers
