Madonna's speech at the Women's March earlier this week has had an unexpected result; she's been blacklisted and her music banned from a Texas radio station. Her comments about "blowing up the White House" have been deemed 'too far' by many and HITS 105 has removed all her music from their station, and is encouraging other music outlets to follow suit.
Texas is an historically conservative state and voted for Trump in the 2016 election, however according to a statement made by HITS 105 general manager, Terry Thomas, to Billboard the ban is not because of political alliances: "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."
Since the backlash, Madonna has apologised on her (now private) Instagram account for how her sentiments came across: "I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. 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."
