Madonna has been forced to come clean about some comments she made during a concert in Washington DC on Monday night where she called President Obama a “black muslim in the White House.”
During the stop on her MDNA tour, Madonna told concert-goers, “Y’all better vote for f**king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House,” she told fans during the show. “That’s some amazing s–t. It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddammit.”
Possibly important to note that the President is not exactly “fighting” for gay rights, but rather just changed his stance on the issue during the peak of this election season, while his opponent believes that marriage should remain between a man and a woman. Some would consider it “fishing for bonus points.”
Either way, Madonna’s “black muslim” comments caused some controversy, making their rounds on the airwaves with many wondering what exactly she was talking about. The singer claims she was just mocking those who believe that B.O. is a follower of Islam and out to destroy America. She explained,
“I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were?
“The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America.”
