In a recent interview for V Magazine playwright Jeremy O. Harris asked Madam X if peace can exist in a world affected by a pandemic?
“It’s interesting because peace is subjective the way people think about the pandemic, for instance, that the vaccination is the only answer, or the polarization of thinking, you’re either on this side or the other. Later Madonna added: “There’s no debate, there’s no discussion. No one’s allowed to speak their mind right now. No one’s allowed to say what they really think about things for fear of being canceled, cancel culture. In cancel culture, disturbing the peace is probably an act of treason.”Madonna – V Magazine
And while Madonna railed against the cancel culture tying it to the pandemic and the life saving Covid-19 vaccine was not the best analogy. This is not the first issue Madonna has had with her COVID-19 related opinions. In July, 2020, Madonna’s Instagram account was flagged for spreading “false information” about coronavirus after she shared a video of physician and pastor Dr. Stella Immanuel, who falsely claimed that social distancing and face masks are ineffective in the fight against COVID and made the unsubstantiated claim that hydroxychloroquine is a cure for the virus without any due diligence on her part.
Madonna was condemned by many fans and followers, including Annie Lennox, who wrote, “I can’t believe that you are endorsing this dangerous quackery.
So is Madonna anti-vax or anti-cancel culture or BOTH?
Or does she just like publicity.
