As a special added bonus she came out and took off her top to reveal the name OBAMA across her chest. Then she thrilled the Denver audience by pretending to pop off a few rounds into the crowd, always a knee-slapper.
Did Madonna display a galling lack of judgment…or was she merely taking the whole theme of “Express Yourself” to heart? Either way, the iconic entertainer certainly offended some of her fans in Denver Thursday night when she started off her show with a scene involving guns and simulated shooting into the crowd. Madonna’s used the gun-firing skit–which was described on local news KUSA’s Facebook account by various fans as graphic and including “a blood-spattered screen”–on previous tour dates. However, of course, Denver is a sensitive city in which to perform such theatrics, given the tragic mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado just three months ago that claimed 12 lives.
But hey, don’t be upset, it’s just her zany artistic expression to show how bad guns are. So lighten up, folks.
The gunplay wasn’t the only thing fans were buzzing about regarding the Denver date. According to many, Madonna took the stage remarkably late, “stepped on a cross,” and took off her top to reveal “OBAMA” printed on her chest.
These Obama supporters are so hip, huh?
