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.

Wow her crowd looks excited...NOT This isn't exactly an MJ concert (remember his Bucharest tour?). Anyway, it's kind of uncool to bring up political tish at a concert which is supposed to be a fun/relaxing experience. Oh well, Madonna isn't known for her IQ.

just me    

I am Romanian and trust me when I tell you that gypsies (tigani) are mostly comprised of violent and downright ignorant people. In an effort to end discrimination against them, they were given apartments a few years ago. These people then proceeded to tear out the floor an make FIRES in the apartments!!!! Some gypsies that left Romania and went to other countries such as France continually rape and murder people. These gypsies are a constant presence in Romania and other countries of the world and most of them have the reputation they have for a reason!

Madonna excuse the ignorant rants here on this website, these are people
who are filled with self-hatred, loneliness, contempt for oneself and
most of them will probably end up being serial killers..so pray for their
dejected souls...I agree with you 100%, people fear others who are different..so don't waste your time trying to get through to these hateful idiots they are a lost cause..

Because of the Gypsies the Romanians look bad abroad! I am a Romanian woman, I do not belong to the ROMA people! Do you know which was the most spectacular moment of her show last night? Showing Michael Jackson's picture and an impersonator of him performing!
