Fans Boo Madonna

for Defending 'Gypsies'

8/27/2009 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Madonna was hit with a tidal wave of boos at her concert in Bucharest -- pronounced booooo′kÉ™ rest′ -- Romania last night, when she stopped her concert to raise awareness about the discrimination of "Gypsies" across Eastern Europe.



Despite the boos, Madonna -- who was accompanied onstage by Roma (aka Gypsy) performers -- didn't even flinch as the crowd became unruly, finishing her point saying, "freedom and equal rights for everyone ... Gyspies ... homosexuals .. people who are different."

After the rant, Madonna can be heard saying the words "god dammit" in frustration. That happens about 1:20 into the clip.

Gypsies commit armed robbery, home invasions, rape, kill, steal- Madonna the foremost hater of God, defends gypsies.

Go defend pedophiles next, Madge, you saggy old woman, you know you want to.

Romania is NOT a nazi country and romanians are not ignorant. But gypsies are not the way the used to be, with caravans and horses and tents. Gypsis these days are breaking the law, and because of them, us romanians have a bad reputation. Gypsis stopped being only in Romania long time ago so please stop associating them with us. Romanians are romanians and gypsis are gypsis. I think people who can't understand that are the ignorant ones. And dear Madonna, never ever comment on something you have no idea about. You live in a pretty perfect pink world, we don't. If you can't keep your oppinions to yourself, please try and at least do some research first.

madonna should try saying this things in italy, spain, ireland. they'd throw her off the stage. they dont't just discriminate gypsies over there, they simply hate them. they'd do anything to get rid of them. romainians don't discriminate gypsies just for being gypsies. they discriminate them for their criminal records and for the bad reputation they're giving romania. you have no idea how hard it is to be a romanian tourist in those countries. and even worse, a romanian living there. after a romanian gypsie murdered an italian woman people started attacking romanians all over italy just because they were from romania and were heard speaking romanian. now tell me, how would you feel about that? is it fair..because of romanian gypsies all hard working romanians living there should suffer and be discriminated? you know, gypsies are not those nice people with big hats who move from town to town in caravans and sing happy songs near the fire that you see in movies. our relity is much worse and we have to live with it daily

Gypsies people in Romania have no education, no job, no problem, they steal, they cheat.Dont you think they are victims, cause they're not. By the way, Madonna, her performance was very dissapointing. No wonder that the most apreciated part of the concert was the tribute to Michael Jackson.

People booed Madonna because she was talking about a situation she doesn't know at all. She was not fair with her Romanian audience and she was not fair with Gypsy community using it for publicity. She knows very well that every crowd reaction is instantly spread and interpreted worldwide by media. Anyway, I feel discriminated when internet media makes general remarks accusing community I belong (Romanian one) of racism without taking in consideration how many booed and how many didn't and so on. Does she protect me? I suppose not. Madonna, don't you want to be The Protector of hurt majority? It is a noble cause, too.

a Real Gypsy in the USA!!    

ok For 1 She is Wrong!! " Lay la pa-la tu tay" does not mean Mad Love when you break it down word by word the song says " Get her after yourself" wich really means you want her that bad get married to her that whole song is talking about a man who is wanting this woman so much that he is dieing. when i first heard this song i understood every "gypsy word" in it,

so it is about love but when she asked if anyone knew what " Lay la pa la tu tay" means she should of gave the real meaning
