Madonna still in controversy

October 26th, 2006 // 80 Comments

Just a few days after claiming he didn’t know Madonna would gain permanent custody of his child, Yohane Banda, the father of the 13-month-old Malawian boy Madonna wants to adopt, says he’s scared Madonna will back out of the adoption because of all the negative press. He says:

“I am afraid Madonna may get angry and frustrated and decide to dump my son because of these people. These so-called human rights activists are harassing me every day, threatening me that I am not aware of what I am doing. I’m afraid David may be sent back and the orphanage may not even accept him back. So where will he end up? Here? He will certainly die.”

And regarding his previous statements about not meaning to give Madonna permanent custody he says:

“I was telling these rights groups that I wasn’t selling my son. I said I wouldn’t … sell my son for anything but I had agreed with Madonna before a judge so my comments were taken out of context and I hope Madonna is not angry.”

I was hoping the first pictures of Madonna’s new family would be of her and her two kids and in the background would be David chained to the radiator eating out of a dog bowl. But no, she’s actually treating the adopted kid with dignity and respect. And now that she has the approval of the father it makes it imposisble to hate what she’s done. Although the father is so completely confused about everything I think with enough coaxing we could get him to admit the kid isn’t even his and then confess to staging the moon landing in his basement studio.

    pretty baby—stop feeding the trolls on this board. they are just jealous that a dirty african baby is now living the good life while they are about to lose their job at walmart and don’t know how their kids will be able to afford a GED.

    WHY, GOD…. WHY?

    Please rest assured that #27 is not the same Oprah that you watch on TV.

    Probably not, anyway.

    @49 justme – A white supremist piece of shit posted “once” a while back on a “black” thread and left his calling card.
    I feel you should go there and comment on his site… and stay there! (If it’s busy, keep trying)

    Angry Ferret chased (TNB) off and he hasn’t been back since. There’s a line between joking about blacks and meaning what you say, and you mean what you say.

    P.S. Fish people, I may post this comment on a couple of threads until that garbage gets the hint and leaves.

    I fail to see how dumping her new accessory, oops I mean kid, on a plane with a nanny and immediately pimping photos of the kid is really treating him with dignity and respect. Those photos were probably taken during the 10 minutes each day that the nanny gets to leave the kids and go to the bathroom, leaving Madonna legally required to acknowledge their existence.

    @ #26 – I think you mean United Colors of Benetton, which was my first imprression as well.

    This picture (and this entire sad affair) is self-serving, attention-whoring, button-pushing, too-much-information, bullshit from a washed up used-to-be has-been who is clutching at straws to be relevant.

    In other words, classic Madonna.

    One good thing has come out of this whole debacle: Malawi is now officially on the world map – cos quite honestly – who here had heard about Malawi before? and who maybe heard the name before but had NO clue where in Africa it is? Maybe the plight of its people will now become more of a focus…

    Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes?, is an unattractive version of a younger Madonna. I guess she had to adopt this time so she could pick one that was cute because if she had another one that included her genes it may have looked like her.

    If I had the choice I would rather grow up in America with Madonna than Malawi without her. Madonna is a star and at least she is making an effort to make the world a better place.

    Here’s a thought: how come you never get rich black Africans trying to adopt poor white Americans?

    leaves me wondering,
    “where is mr. madonna??”

    ‘And excuse me, but how in the hell is the media communicating with someone who lives in the bush of Africa? I didn’t think they had spoken language much less phones and interview capabilities where little “David” is from. They don’t even wear clothes there.’

    Are you joking? Or have you been hanging out with justme?

    Oh my god! David Banda is black!

    Off topic, but, why does Rocco always look like the really poor trailer park kid with the worst “home job” buzz cut? Can’t they afford a real barber for him? Ick. Lourdes is pretty, but is way to young to be the pretentious mini-Madge she clearly is. I’m sure she believe every time she takes a dump, rose petals appear on the tp rather than a brown smudge. Woops! I said brown smudge! Oh yeah that’s right – back to David…..

    Madge Jr will have serious mental issues because she was kept isolated from society\e, television, reality, and – obviously – a BROW WAXER!! FUCK!

    for the love of god, please do something with Whore Jr’s fucking uni-brow.. jesus age christ

    She’ll be the same kind of isolated whore piece-of-ignorant-shit that her mom was, mark my words

    Homeschooled kids are ALWAYS 100% fucked-up losers

  26. duster200

    ….er, no.

    Mr Madonna is busy collecting money from Madonna recent Tour :)

    74: Is Lionel Richie African? I thought he was American.

    Lourdes and Rocco are trying to restrain David because he wants to bolt. And Rocco looks like a freak because his parents are Madonna & Guy Ritchie & because his ears are growing out of his neck.

    All 4 of them are wondering:
    “Where’s DAD-EEE?”

  30. meh, just let her adopt the kid and be done with it!
