Madonna, the 80s music star known for being overtly sexual and blasphemous, has called for the disarming of everyone.
In response to the death of George Floyd, which did not involve a gun, the singer posted to her Instagram:
Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops.

with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time. This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!! Until we can over come Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops. God Bless you George Floyd Im so sorry for you and your family. And all the senseless killings that have gone before you. Will it ever end? 🙏🏼 I pray to GOD it does one day. Until then—Fuck The Police! Yea I said it. Im not interested in being PC. Im interested in Justice. @shaunking #georgefloyd #justice #guncontrol
On June 13, 2019, Madonna released “God Control,” the video of which depicted a mass shooting. She told People magazine that she depicted the shooting in order “to draw attention to a crisis that needs to be addressed.” She said, “To me, this is the biggest problem in America right now.”
On June 28, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Orlando Pulse shooting survivor Brandon Wolf called out Madonna over the gruesome mass shooting depiction. Wolf said, “She didn’t acknowledge that it was it was Pulse that inspired the intro to this video. She didn’t acknowledge the 49 people who died for that artistic inspiration.”
“This is the same Madonna who– right after the Pulse shooting happened – posted a picture of herself kissing Britney Spears to honor the 49 victims who had just lost their lives,” Wolf said.
