Madonna has always been one to speak her mind and spark a little controversy in the process.
The iconic pop singer is participating in the Women's March on Washington today (Jan. 21) and during her remarks, she took advantage of an opportunity to share a special, uncensored message to any haters opposing the protest effort, doing so both on live television and in front of 500,000 attendees.
During her speech, Madonna unapologetically said the f-word no less than three times, with her explicit language being aired without censorship on CNN, C-Span and MSNBC.
"Welcome to the revolution of love, to the rebellion, to our refusal as women to accept this new age of tyranny, where not just women are in danger but all marginalized people, where being uniquely different right now might truly be considered a crime," Madonna stated, during her speech. "It took this horrific moment of darkness to wake us the f**k up."
Later on in her remarks, Madonna offered another bold statement, directed at those who feel as though organized and peaceful protests are not effective.
"To our detractors that insist that this march will never add up to anything, f**k you," she said, before repeating "f**k you" one more time.
As reported, both CNN and MSNBC promptly redirected the focus of their live coverage, with CNN's Brook Baldwin apologizing for the organization's airing of the shocking, uncensored moment.
Following her remarks, Madonna performed two of her anthems, "Express Yourself" and "Human Nature."
