Madonna had made the controversial comments during Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington, a demonstration attended by half a million people.

The singer, while delivering a speech at the march, had said, “Yes, I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she said. “But I know this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”

After receiving massive backlash for her statement, the mother of four has come forth to say her comments were “taken out of context”.

“I am not a violent person,’’ the Like a Virgin singer said on Instagram.

“I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt.’’

According to BBC, threats against the US president are often taken seriously by the secret service but one US official told the New York Post that it would depend on whether Madonna’s remarks were considered a genuine threat.

“It’s all about intent. Is she intending to do harm to the White House or President Trump? Otherwise, it will be characterized as inappropriate,” the official said.
