On Tuesday, Texarkana’s Classic Hits station, HITS 105, announced it is removing all Madonna songs from being aired on its show indefinitely.
The HIT radio show’s decision comes days following the pop star’s infamous “un-American sentiments” concerning President Trump and her F-bomb-laden speech at the Women’s March on Washington.
Madonna is catching heat for her expletive-filled speech last weekend, in which she exclaimed, “Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
On Sunday, Madonna urged her detractors to “understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context.” She then took to Instagram to write, “I am not a violent person. I do not promote violence.”
Her recent antics and political remarks struck a cord with HITS general manager Terry Thomas who pulled the plug on all Madonna songs, vowing to take her music off the air in light of her comments.
The Texarkana radio station posted an announcement to Facebook that “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. If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna.”
It even followed up the post with hashtag #nomoremadonna.
