Madonna booed for defending Gypsies

August 27th, 2009 // 73 Comments

Madonna was booed yesterday when she spoke out against the widespread discrimination of Gypsies while performing in Bucharest. The AP reports:

“It has been brought to my attention … that there is a lot of discrimination against Romanies and Gypsies in general in Eastern Europe,” she said. “It made me feel very sad.”
Thousands booed and jeered her.
A few cheered when she added: “We don’t believe in discrimination … we believe in freedom and equal rights for everyone.” But she got more boos when she mentioned discrimination against homosexuals and others.
“I jeered her because it seemed false what she was telling us. What business does she have telling us these things?” said Ionut Dinu, 23.

Wow. I’m sure that’s exactly what the Gypsies needed: Public support from a thousand year old sorceress who steals babies from poor villages. No, really, I’m sure it was a PR move they would’ve made themselves but were just waiting for the right time. Like around never.

    When she squats and pee’s I wonder how many spiders fly out of her cooch before a stream comes out?

  5. prozac

    WTF. Thinks she’s still 25, thinks she can play the guitar and thinks those fucking ridiculous fishnet hose make her goofy ass look better. Just who are the drug addled dickheads who are still going to her concerts?

  6. gigi

    Those photos are a little embarrassing… why does she think she needs to defend gypsies??- gypsies are, and will always be, more than fine. Madonna doesn’t need to triumph their cause lol

  7. Eastern Euros really do hate gypsies. Like DESPISE them. I’ve hung with some and it’s all they talk about.

    Frankly I’m prepared to reserve judgment until I’ve actually met some gypsies. For all I know they *are* children of the devil.

    Que gypsie devile (for true 100%).

    Madonna, just because I banged you few times when I was wasted to promote Gogol Bordello doesn’t mean you can start defending gypsies like you’re one of us/ we gypsies can take of ourselves/ now go take care of your f*ing kids! The rest of Europe can hate us if they want — we’ve never cared & don’t need their approval so f* off

  10. Jamie's Uterus

    Her political bullshit has to stop. We get it, you want to be controversial. Go home grandma.

  11. blp

    Not just Eastern Euros, I’m British and I despise them. But then I also despise, Jews, Blacks, Paki’s, Muslims, faggots, metrosexuals, old people, babies, children, most women and anyone in authority. There’s not many people here I can be friends with any more :(

  12. Ella

    What a disgusting old woman. I wish she’d grow up and act her age! Can you imagine having her as your mother?

  13. Bite Me or Fight Me

    Madonna’s right on. I love the pic sayin’ ‘fuck y’all’.

  14. Cash

    “What business does she have telling us these things?” said Ionut Dinu, 23.”

    EXACTLY! Why is it that only the people in fucking Bucharest get this? Wish they’d all get together, and collectively tell the celebrity culture to shut the fuck up already, and stop telling the little people, who they couldn’t give less of a shit about, what to do?

    As horrifying as she looks I still have a raging boner right now. Oh my god! It must be a gypsy curse. Damn you, you awful awful people. Also, I’m blaming the boners I get from looking at Spencer Pratt’s flesh beard on gypsies to….bastards

  16. The Truth

    Gypsies are criminals. They are tolerated in parts of Europe as long as they only steal from tourists. These people are human garbage and should all get a visit from Michael Jackson’s doctor.

  17. Jonny

    Gypsies are all over the world, not just in Eastern Europe. There are thousands in the New York area. They are an entirely criminal culture….taught to steal from birth. Ask any police officer in an urban area about gypsies. They will steal the eyes out of your head while you are looking at them. Madonna just read the local paper and picked the most controversial position to get the most attention from her shitty terrible performance…..again. What a hack.

  18. titsonsnack

    She’s senile.

  19. Randall

    One time a gypsy drugged me and I when I woke up I found out he took my wallet…and my virginity

    Nice try at making up for hitting that old gypsy woman with your car but It’s not gonna work, you’ll have to find some other way to lift the curse.

  21. gsjad

    Stupid preachy cuntmummy doesn’t even know what she’s talking about.

  22. Feckless

    Yes, fucking Gypsies are all over the world and they are a fucking plague. They go anywhere in public and they are all grandiose like they own the place, they steal whatever they possibly can, even if they don’t need it. They don’t pay taxes because they say they are “a people without a country” – and yet they take every possible advantage of the welfare system. Gypsies are the primary argument for reinstating a Leper’s colony on some rock of an island and putting every gypsy on the planet there.

    Where do you think the phrase “What a GYP!!” comes from?

  23. John

    I live right by the North American “home base” for Irish Travelers(who are typically what people in the U.S. refer to as gypsies, not the Romani). Fun times.

    It can be really weird, they all look *identical*(and not in a racist way, in a white guy looking at other white people way). And even the smallest girls are completely made up with 80′s hair and make-up. The definitely love to run some scams(I’ve heard roofing is the big one) but they are really nice if given a chance to know them.

    For some reason they collectively decided they love my mom.

  24. Feckless

    @23: I am “typically” referring to the caucasian fucks with black hair and light blue eyes from fucking Romania and the highest level of existence they can aspire to is being a fucking nuisance.

    That bitch is…SO…lame.

    I mean, after all, folks. This was the hobag who let Dennis “The Worm” Rodman shoot his rancid jizz down her throat and up her skanky cooz.

    Nuff said.

    “YEAAAH FREEDOM!”

    “…EXCEPT FOR FAGS!”

    Seriously, what.

    Play your baby voiced bubble gum music, collect your bucks and cut the F-ing preaching.

  29. Samhain

    Wow, I guess I should comment since I am part Hungarian Gypsy. Great-great-grandma sold home remedies, Great-grandma (who lived to be 101.5) read Tarot, Grandma could see the dead, and I read Tarot. No stealing of eyeballs that I’m aware of.

    Hey, that makes me a MINORITY! I’m oppressed! The White Man is keeping me down! Where’s my free stuff?

    Thank God for you, Madonna!

  30. ali

    she’s so fucking ugly.

  31. Roxy

    Has anyone forgotten that thousands of Roma were killed by the Nazis due to prejudice and ouright hatred?
    Madonna did the right thing. Congrats, Madge :D

  32. lola

    I have never liked Madonna’s music, but she is a strong musician who made it to the top all on her own. She is like a female Michael Jackson minus the alleged pedophilia. I respect her for her hard work and dedication. I repeat that I do not like her music :)

  33. Girl from Eastern Europe

    I hate gypsies because they once ate my dog.

    Come to think of it, I also hate Madonna and think she should be locked up in a mental hospital. The first time I saw her rolling all over the floor and singing ‘Like a Virgin,” I thought she was an escaped mental patient.

    Madonna could care less about your dog. If they ate her dog, she’d just go out and buy another, just like she buys kids, and, next she’ll buy a gypsy kid just to create a noise (like a big shit).

  35. #11, you’re British? So busy hating on everybody because you are pissed off that most of you have bug eyes, big noses & nonexistent lips just like that Princess Diana. And an accent that makes most Northern Americans need tablets of Dramamine just to listen to you for more than 5 mins.

  37. Madonna is defending Gypsies because she joined their religion, Kaballah. Maroding Gypsies, they are.

  38. Exoticbeauty

    That bitch is on Steroids, have you seen the veins in her arms.

  39. Nice Fleur de Lis there, Madonna. Paying tribute to your French Canadian heritage? Keep up with the plastic surgeries, you are finally beginning to look like me but…much older and I unlike you, like real porn. Keep it quiet. You have enough money, so you don’t need to fake degrade yourself even if you love it. I’m just better than you.

    Here’s some porn links that I subscribe to, Madge. Leave me a message…

    Oh, and unlike you Madonna, I didn’t have to get my big ginzo nose bobbed and I’ve got my degree. No cheek implants for me. I was born with ‘em. Stupid, wanna be Jewish posehag! Uneducated moron who took up guitar in your thirties and still suck!

  40. valaki

    well I live in Hungary there’s lot of gypsies here…let’s just say madonna doest’t know what it is like to live with people like gypsies. I would love to see madonna having a gypsy near to her I bet she would say shit like this… by the way those fans paid a lot of money to see madonna at that concert and they didn’t wanted to be criticized. if Lady Madonna has problem then go to the romanian politicians not to fans

  41. eli

    Madonna said that because she’s a rich c*nt and has no idea what kind of people are these gypsies she defends. I live in Romania and I know what I’m talking about. They don’t work, are lazy, don’t wash, really, they STINK , steal, organize in violent gangs and they make money only from illegal businesses, for example prostitution. Not to mention they make tons of babies when they are so poor and send them beg on the street.If you are in a bus and there is a gypsy standing next to you, you have to be careful all the time. They are terrorizing for everyone and they are everywhere. In my opinion they should be all exterminated. So please stfu with this anti-discrimination shit because pink unicorns do not exist and they don’t shit cookies. Gypsies ARE EVIL.

  42. blablabla

    who cares about them pikies, gypsies or whatever shit ! those people r thieves they should be hunted and exterminated once and for all ! and this fucking old whore mad-dona should start acting her age, wearing some pants and hiding those disgusting arms and hands of hers ! also, if she cares about them gypsies so much, why don t she do something for them ! there are gypsies all over the fucking world and this old whore have enough money to feed them all ! why not buying a gypsie babie mad dona ? oh… sorry, i forgot, black people have a bigger and longer dick than white people ! that s why you like buying little black children ? so when they ll grow up, you ll fuck them right away you you love controversy don t you old hag ?? i guess in a few years, she ll be fucking her adopted children, just like woody allen ! another fucked up in the head old bastard but hey, look at the bight side, you ll have LOTS of publicity !!! OLD WHORE

  43. S.R.

    I like Madonna and I think she is right,discrimination is bad,but in the case of gypsies in Romania,she doesn’t know what the hell she is talking about.. I know,cuz I am Romanian. There are so many programs and actions taken to “embrace” the gypsies and anti-discrimination and stuff ,it’s just… THEY DO NOT COLLABORATE, they love their filthy lives,they make a lot of babies so they can beg on the streets,they steal/rape/kill,and they refuse to get an education! There were programs created by the authorities to build them houses, after their houses were finished they made their horses and other animals live in the houses and they built huts for them to live in near the house.Now tell me..isn’t that a waste of money?!… I am starting to believe they are a lost cause..it’s sad…

  44. Donna

    Please, oh please, Madonna, come and live in Romania for a few days and you’ll hate gypsies faster than you can say “Kaballah”. Or at least try as hard as you can to stay away from them: they steal, never wash, don’t send their kids to school, marry their girls at 12, destroy everything that anyone ever gives to them…

    In my country, staying away from gypsies is not racist: it’s just common sense.

  45. Diana

    Romanies is not the same thing with Romanians
    Romanies=Gypsies
    Romanians= people who live in Romania

  46. Diana

    Some people can’t make the difference

    west is perfect and so wise that even washed up pop stars should be giving other ethnic groups/countries advice on race relations

    before this she used tried co-opting religious imagery into her stage shows. then she acted shocked when people in India complained…
    this racist bitch has no regards for anything or anyone. she uses other cultures, religious symbols and even people (orphans) like fashion accessories.

    she spent the 80s ranting about sucking and now all of sudden she is so knowledgeable and politically conscious????
    her little remarks are hidden in a “the west is the best and knows all” mentality. though her anti-racism is funny and ironically racist, it also shows how shallow this neo-imperialist cunt is.
    her take on the problem shows she does not understand what is going on and is likely repeating one liners from ignorant pop magazines and internet blogs.
    madonna is a superficial attention whore. she is only concerned with her image. ironically, as she tries to convince us that she is tolerant and politically conscious, she reveals herself to be nothing more than an ignorant, arrogant bitch.

    than she acts surprised when people react as if she thinks she has some right to commodify anything

    she is not a rebel. she is neo-imperialist,hypocritical racist capitalist swine.
    the 80s brought us Gordon Gekko, and madonna is his prunier female counterpart.

    Madonna doenst know a fuck about what she is talking. If you go to Barcelona and u get stolen in the metro, that is a gypsy, if they steal you in rambla, that is a moor, if they steal you in the highway that is peruvian, and if they steal you with the bill that is the owner of the resto.

    A family relative went to Paris for vacation and gypsies are just relentless at trying to pick-pocket you. Even using their children for means of stealing. She was on a train and a group of children gypsies tried pushing her towards the door, creating a distraction for the other kid to open her purse. Fortunately a french police man was there and grabbed this brat by his neck and shoved him off the train when it came to a stop. He pushed the rest of the children off the train and they acted like they didn’t do ANYTHING wrong. No shame at all trying to steal. I’m pretty sure Madonna would kick the children off a moving train if they try to steal from her gucci purse! I feel bad for all the people here having to live with such scum without morals.
