Madonna really stepped in it this time and, honestly, we think it’s gonna take her a while to weasel her way outta this.
Yesterday, the singer found herself wading into COVID-19 controversy after she shared a coronavirus propaganda video and voiced her support for Dr. Stella Immanuel, the quack physician who runs a clinic out of a strip mall in Texas, claims hydroxychloroquine is the cure for coronavirus, and has been encouraging people not to wear masks. (She’s also made bizarre comments about “demon sperm” in the past.)
“The truth will set us all free!” Madonna wrote on Instagram yesterday. “This woman is my hero … Thank you Stella Immanuel.”
Instagram quickly censored the post, blurring out the video and warning viewers that it contained coronavirus misinformation. Madonna later deleted it from her social media pages, but by then the damage was already done.
Even her most loyal fans now appear to be turning on her, and rightfully so. The video she shared was deplorable and filled with inaccurate information that has been disproven and could very easily result in people dying.
Gay Twitter is currently on a tear…

4. Madonna was not hacked. The caption was clearly written in her voice and goes along with her detached from reality rhetoric.
The Madonna of the late 80s who used her power and fame to bring attention to the HIV/AIDS crisis wouldn’t recognize the Madonna of today.

Madonna is only anti-mask because she almost strangled herself trying to put the last one on pic.twitter.com/juJ7MlKiEX

please stop pretending madonna was hacked and instead hold her responsible for her irresponsibility. the world is in too awful of a state for you to make excuses for people posting bullshit.

Oh, but it doesn’t stop there…
Stanning Madonna is starting to give me a headache

I’ve stayed mentally strong for these past four-ish months, but Madonna sharing false, “censored” coronavirus content on Instagram may be what finally breaks me.

I’ve loved @Madonna my whole life. But she gave me a nasty look at the Kabbalah center once. I’ll never forgive her for that, her last album or for promoting a quack doctor pushing #Hydroxychloroquine. Honey, you are cancelled.

Congrats to @Madonna, who has been cancelled.

Sorry, @Madonna, but you can’t just delete and retreat. We deserve an explanation, and you should repudiate your hero for the day, Dr. Stella Immanuel. This goes beyond fandom. https://t.co/oPMoIdq58M

Madonna actually didn’t post that she was hacked. She’s actually still driving around looking for the iTunes store

SO LET’S RECAP REALLY QUICK
MADONNA POSTS A CRAZY CORONAVIRUS VIDEO FROM HER BATHTUB, AND DELETES IT
SHE POSTS HER ♥️ FOR ANTI-SEMITIC FARRAKHAN, BUT IT’S STILL THERE
NOW TODAY SHE POSTS #Hydroxychloroquine ALIEN DNA MADNESS, IT GETS DELETED, SHE REPOSTS IT, & DELETES AGAIN 🤣

Madonna has yet to comment on the controversy.
