Travis Tritt thinks Madonna has a lot of explaining to do.
The international popstar fell into hot water following her controversial speech at the Women's March on Washington, D.C. Saturday (Jan.21) where she admitted she has "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House." The R-rated anti-Trump rant sparked much attention, including the attention of the Grammy Award-winning country singer.
"Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House," Madonna said. "But I know that this won't change anything. We cannot fall into despair."
Tritt took to Twitter to question not only Madonna, but a media outlet awarding her praise for her speech they describe as "powerful." The country singer has a serious bone to pick with Madonna regarding where exactly the "love" was in her swear-ridden speech.
Maybe I missed it, but where was the "love" she said she was there to promote? https://t.co/hkKC2ae023— Travis Tritt (@Travistritt) January 23, 2017
In the aftermath of her controversial speech, the "Like A Virgin" singer took to Instagram to clarify her remarks, she claims, were "taken out of context."
Yesterday's Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love. It was truly an honor to be part of an audience chanting “we choose love”. 🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸♥️🙏🏻🇺🇸 #revoltutionoflove♥️#revolutionoflove♥️*******************************************************
