Madonna was one among dozens of celebs who welcomed the 500,000 protesters in attendance to the “revolution of love” at Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington. But Madge made it clear that a revolution of love has room for a few f-bombs.
At three different points during her speech, Madonna let loose some profanity to the cheers of those in attendance. After the third f-bomb was dropped, CNN and MSNBC cut away from her speech, with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin apologizing for airing the profanity uncensored. C-SPAN, meanwhile, aired her speech in its entirety.
Madonna opened her speech by urging Americans to reject “this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people, where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime. It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f— up.”
She later said, “To our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f— you.”
