The Queen of Pop did not censor herself on live television.
Always political and never one to mince words, Madonna gave an impassioned speech at the Women’s March on Washington Saturday morning.
Her remarks, laden with profanity, caused several networks to cut-away and apologize for airing the speech doused with f-bombs.
“Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion," she began from the stage, "to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger, but all marginalized people. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f*ck up. It seems as though we had all slipped into a false sense of comfort that justice would prevail and that good would win in the end. Well, good did not win this election, but good will win in the end.”
The singer went on to say that Donald Trump’s presidency does not mark the end of solidarity but its beginning, and “we” will not back down.
She also had a special message for those who felt the march would have no affect on change; she said twice, “f*ck you!”
Millions of people across the globe gathered in their cities to take part in the “Women’s March on Washington” Saturday morning.
Locally, tens-of-thousands of men, women and children amassed in huge numbers throughout downtown carrying anti-Trump signs, Pride flags and women’s rights signage.
"I was never so proud to see the women come together to put the rally on," said LGBT activist Nicole Murray-Ramirez. "They spoke about issues that affect not only women but the LGBT community. We have to come out of the closets and into the voting booths.”
