Texas Radio Station Bans Madonna

The fallout continues for Madonna over her controversial appearance over the weekend at the Women’s March on Washington. As we reported earlier this week, the pop singer dropped three F-bombs on live TV during her speech at the rally, but got the most blowback over her comment that she had thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

On Tuesday the Texarkana, Texas, radio station HITS 105 announced that it had banned Madonna’s music from its airwaves in response to her remarks, Billboard reports. The station, which plays classic hits, said it was removing her music “indefinitely.”

In a statement, Terry Thomas, HITS 105’s general manager, 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.”
