Madonna songs banned from Texas radio station

A radio station in Texas has banned Madonna's music from its airwaves following her speech at the recent Women's March on Washington. 

At the historic event, the 'Like A Prayer' legend addressed the crowd and made her feelings about President Donald Trump very clear: "Yes, I am angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything. We can not fall into despair."

Texas's HITS 105 issued a statement via the station's general manager, Terry Thomas, about the decision to pull her music from its playlists, which reads: 

“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.”
