Following Madonna's Women's March on Washington speech the one in which she told the crowd that she "thought a lot about blowing up the White House" a Texas, radio station has banned the pop star's music.

HITS 105 will remove the outspoken singer from its airwaves "indefinitely", Billboard reported.

Terry Thomas, the station manager, said, "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."

Last Saturday, Madonna spoke out against Donald Trump during a speech at the Women's March in Washington DC.

"Yes, I'm angry," she told the crowd. "Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know this won't change anything. We cannot fall into despair."

On Sunday, Madonna urged her detractors to "understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context."

"I am not a violent person. I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context," she wrote on Instagram.
