Madonna Says “Black Muslim” Obama Comment Was “Ironic”
Pop legend Madonna cleared the air behind a recent comment she made regarding President Barack Obama at her MDNA Tour.
VIBE Vixen posted the video of Madonna’s original ‘vote for Obama’ speech at her D.C. tour stop, where she stated, “Y’all better vote for fucking Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now that’s some amazing shit.”
ABC News now reports that Madge addressed the confusion of her “black muslim” comment in the following statement:
“I was being ironic on stage. Yes I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is—nor should anyone else in America.”
Madonna is reportedly a huge Obama supporter (as seen in the picture above), and has been since his 2008 electoral run.
