Madonna is defending her fiery, expletive-laden speech at the womenâ€™s march, saying her words were â€œtaken wildly out of context.â€
The singer said at the Washington, DC, march on Saturday that she had at times been angry after the election and had thought â€œan awful lot about blowing up the White House.â€
In a statement on Sunday on Instagram, Madonna said she was trying to express there are two ways to respond to Donald Trumpâ€™s election: with hope or with outrage. She said she hopes to effect change â€œwith love.â€
Madonna wrote that she doesnâ€™t promote violence and people should listen to her speech â€œin its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.â€
Cable news network broadcasting her speech cut away after Madonna used several expletives. MSNBC later apologised.
