Madonna's expletive-filled rant against Donald Trump during the Women's March on Washington over inauguration weekend caught the attention of numerous media outlets, while her on-stage admission that she harbored thoughts of blowing up the White House caught the attention of the U.S. Secret Service. And now, one Texas radio station has responded to Madonna's controversial comments by issuing a statement announcing that it will no longer play songs by the pop star.

Station manager wants others to follow his lead

Texarkana-based HITS105 issued a media release on Tuesday stating that the station is taking all Madonna songs off the air indefinitely, and the station's general manager, Terry Thomas, encourages other radio stations to follow suit.

The general manager explained in the media statement posted on the HITS105 Facebook page that his decision to yank Madonna from the playlist of his station, which plays classic rock hits from the 60s to the 80s, was not based on politics, but was "a matter of patriotism."

According to Thomas, it's wrong to be playing Madonna's songs and paying royalties to someone who has shown un-American sentiments. Thomas believes that if other radio stations followed his lead, it would send a powerful message to the Trump-hating pop singer.

Others suggest that Thomas' statement was nothing more than a stunt designed to drum up publicity for his station; of the approximately 1,400 comments posted to the station's Facebook page, a significant portion come from fans who support Madonna's anti-Trump stance.

Madonna walks back controversial quip

During Madonna's performance at the Women's March in Washington, she sang her hit song "Human Nature", substituting the phrase "Donald Trump, suck a d--k" in place of the original lyrics. On Monday, the Secret Service announced that they would launch an investigation surrounding Madonna's admission that she has "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House."

The Gateway Pundit reported earlier this week that the Secret Service will look into the matter, although the decision of whether or not to prosecute rests with the U.S. Attorney's office.

The singer later explained that her comments had been taken out of context.
