Colorado fans upset after Madonna uses guns in show

DENVER (AP) -- Some Colorado fans are upset after music superstar Madonna used guns during a performance.

Bing: Madonna's tour controversy

Madonna started her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver with a gun scene, which she has used in previous performances.

According to KUSA-TV, the station received several calls Friday from concertgoers saying they were offended she used guns and violence as part of her show in light of recent events in the state that included a mass shooting at a theater during a Batman movie on July 20 that left 12 people dead.

In a statement before beginning the tour, Madonna said she does not condone the use of guns. She said she is using the guns as symbols of intolerance and "the pain I have felt from having my heart broken."

Once again...a miserable attempt at relevancy by a miserable human being.  Why doesn't she just do all of us a favor and go back to England.

There is no doubt that the Colorado Shootings was a tragedy. However if you start to live in the shadows because of horrible events like this you are doing exactly what these criminals have set out to do and that is to make you live in fear, strip you of your freedoms, and make you feel uneasy in your hometown.

Remember the "fallen" and not the "act of terror" or the "criminals" themselves.

While I detest M---------, and all she represents, I defend the "gun". The ONLY people offended by guns are weakling dupes urged on by their communist puppet masters. Get this straight. WE THE PEOPLE will NEVER give up our 2nd Amendment rights until the "gun" is "pried from our cold dead hands". NEVER!

You knew there were fake guns used in her concert unless you have been living under a rock!! Did you just go to her show to be offended? Don't get me wrong... I think Madonna is a used up hag that can't keep clothes on that 50 plus hide of hers, but holy hell!! DON'T GO TO THE SHOW IF YOU ARE EASILY OFFENDED because that is all she has been doing on this whole tour!! A strip tease to honor a pour girl shot by the Taliban... F&%K!! If everyone would quit going to her shows this entire problem would be solved!!!!!!
