New York, October 29: Madonna got booed at and caused several audience members to walk out of her concert in New Orleans after she urged them to vote for President Obama.
The pop star, whose ‘MDNA’ tour has already been marked by several controversial incidents, performed in New Orleans on Saturday.
During the show, she asked concertgoers: “Who’s registered to vote?” She then added that she didn’t care who they voted for, “as long as you vote for Obama.”
The 54-year-old, however, quickly changed her tune when she heard the crowd’s reaction, the New York Daily News reported.
“Seriously, I don’t care who you vote for … Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote,” she continued.
This is not the first time Madonna has drawn criticism for making a political statement on her MDNA tour.
The pop star confused fans in September when she told them to support the “black Muslim in the White House” at a Washington, D.C. concert. (ANI)
