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.

She sounds like she's trying to be a college professor or some kind of self- help guru. It's so condescending. People don't go to a concert for a lecture.

Anything goes in Madonna's world. Once a greasy skank, always a greasy skank. She is nothing but a two-bit tramp. She should just shut up and lip synch, that is what she is getting paid to do.

And just because somebody has different opinions than your own doesn't mean they are wrong or bigoted or racist or whatever. If you freaky hipocrites really want to accept everyone, then accept those who disagree with you too.

Not too late to repent either.

She is right that Gypsies are discriminated against, often it is justified, sometimes not.

uhHuh    

apparently the "equal rights for everyone" spill doesnt apply to Christians who DO believe in God-(dad gommit!) she sure doesnt treat people equally-she puts herself above others and for some reason thinks she has a platform for politics when the only platform she is on is her own stage (watch out-it could collapse)
no one wants to hear you Horseface. moreso, it hurts to look at you!

Idiots. They weren't "booing" Madonna. They were "booing" the people who discriminate. This is such a non-story. You had to strain to even hear the 23 people in the audience of thousands who were actually "booing". Slow news day, yet again, TMZ?

She wakes up early every morning
Just to do her hair now
Because she cares yeah

Her day oh wouldn't be right
Without her make up
She's never had a make up

She's just like you and me
But she's homeless, she's homeless
As she stands there singing for money.

La da dee la dee da

stalkers are scum    

I was there in 2005. A gypsy grabbed my arm with a death grip! Would not turn me loose until I gave her a ten dollar bill. I've had an intense hatred for gypsies ever since. If a gypsy dared laid a hand on the Madge she would have ordered her bodyguard to cut their hand off! BOO, Madge!!

Em    

Madonna needs to do her homework before supporting a "cause". I have a few close friends from Romania who have told me about the gypsies. There is good reason she got "booed"; the Romanian gypsies are not good, law-abiding, fairy-tale figures we may be familiar with from stories of our youth. Her fans probably spent good money to see her perform and then she carries on about the discrimination of gypsies. Ouch. Slap in the face to the Romanians.

Madonna is a rightgeous d*uche bag. Good riddance to her. She makes her fortune in the US then leaves and bad mouths the US. Later skeletor gas bag!

I do not understand why she did not show the crowd her arms, that would calm them down, and scared the hell out of the booers.
