A comment from singer Madonna during the “Women March” in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, has sparked enough concern that the Secret Service is reportedly “looking into it.”
AOL reports that the Secret Service allegedly plans to open an investigation on the “Vogue” singer after she announced that she had thoughts of blowing up the White House. Madonna was one of the many celebrities who took part in the march, to oppose Donald Trump as the new U.S. president.
“I’m angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair. As the poet W. H. Auden once wrote on the eve of World War Two, “We must love one another or die.” I choose love. Are you with me?’

Although the Secret Service is reportedly looking into the incident, it doesn’t mean Madonna will face charges, according to Gateway Pundit. That decision is ultimately up to the U.S. Attorney’s Office to press charges.
Actress Ashley Judd was among the list of celebrity women to speak out at the march. As the Kiss the Girls star grabbed a microphone in front of thousands of women, she compared Trump to Hitler and made reference to his family members.
“I feel Hitler in these streets, a mustache traded for a toupee. I am a nasty woman. I’m not as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheeto dust. I’m not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol, your wet dreams infused with your own genes.”

Later, Madonna performed two of her hit songs, “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature.” She changed the lyrics to one of the songs to include a vulgar reference to Trump.
Other star-studded attendees at the protest included Cher, Alicia Keys, Michael Moore, Scarlet Johansson, Yoko Ono, and Rosie Perez.
