As the rest of the country protested, Madonna tweeted a strange video of her son dancing. Twitter was not having it.
Can someone check on Madonna?
The pop queen posted a video of her son dancing against discrimination on Twitter, and Twitter gave her a firm, stiff arm.
While her intentions might be okay, her execution is, quite frankly, disturbing.
Sadly, this isn’t the first time during this pandemic that Madonna has made a video that completely missed the point.
Anyone who’s watched the news lately, and isn’t a terrible person, should be furious. So we can’t be too hard on Madonna for trying to help.
But the way she’s trying to help is just… confusing. She posted a video today of her son dancing to pay tribute to fallen police brutality victim, George Floyd.
In the video, she captures her son David Banda dancing and clapping. He’s moving to a muffled Michael Jackson song, “They Don’t Really Care About Us,” in the background.
Could she have found a better artist to rally around? You could argue that there are better options than an accused pedophile.
Twitter had a field day.
Some people were just offended.
The whole video just comes off as strange. But this isn’t the first time during this pandemic that Madonna posted a cringeworthy video with a ‘message.’
You might remember, early into lockdowns; Madonna posted a curious video about the pandemic. She was naked, in an expensive bathtub littered with rose petals, talking over an eerie piano about how COVID-19 was “the great equalizer.”
Was it, Madonna? Was it really? We saw early on that people with money had far more access to testing than people without it. And let’s not forget how much better it would be to quarantine in a mansion than a studio apartment.
It was another video where she attempted to convey a message but completely missed the target. It came off as tone-deaf and self-aggrandizing.
Madonna has been on top of the world for decades, and it seems like she could be losing touch with reality.
Quick, someone make a senseless video to save her.
