Madonna just went off on a fan who questioned her position on the Daunte Wright shooting — after the legendary singer posted a video of the incident calling it “infuriating and unacceptable.”
Earlier today, the ‘Like A Prayer’ singer posted a video of a Minnesota police officer’s explanation of how the shooting was an “accident” along with footage of the actual incident.
The singer included a caption calling out the officer for his explanation, and calling it ‘deeply upsetting.’ After publishing the post on Instagram, Madonna received a response that she was VERY upset with…

“This video of Daunte Wright’s shooting is deeply upsetting,” Madonna wrote.
The singer continued, “But equally so is Police Officer Tim Gannon’s explanation of how it was all an accident. She had a taser in one hand and a handgun in the other. She warned everyone she was going to taser a handcuffed. Daunte who was pulled over for a traffic violation and instead she shot and killed him! No way to fix this accident is there Tim??!! This is so infuriating and unacceptable. God Bless Daunte and his family. ??”
As you can imagine, several of Madonna’s millions of followers reacted to her statement — including someone named…Karen.

“I would bet you have people with guns protect you and your family. But the little people can be left unarmed. If you take the guns away criminals will ALWAYS find weapons. The rest of us innocent people will be victims. You live behind high walls with protection. You do not live in the real world. Criminals do not fear police judges or jail. But if we are an armed society they would fear the victims,” the follower wrote.
Madonna reportedly BLASTED the person, saying, “B—h I don’t have any security or armed guards around me. Come see me and tell me to my face how not real my world is. I dare you. You know nothing about me or my life. The only criminals I see right now are the police who are paid to protect the people. But police are protected by judges and the criminal justice system which is a joke because there is no justice if you are a person of color. Of course, your name is Karen.”
Several other IG followers reacted to Madonna’s message — taking both sides of the argument — with one person, saying, “He wasn’t handcuffed. He was resisting arrest. ?”
Another added, “When will this all end!!! Wake up USA.”
“If an officer doesn’t know which side of their body their gun or taser is, they shouldn’t have one at all. What is going on in this world! ?,” one fan wrote.
President Joe Biden has called for “peace and calm” following protests that erupted after the shooting. Biden called the situation a “really tragic thing.”
“The question is was it an accident? Was it intentional?” he said. Adding, “That remains to be determined by a full-blown investigation. I think we’ve got to wait and see what the investigation shows – and the entire investigation.”
