Madonna faces criticism for using the word ‘gay’ to negatively describe superfood kale
The superstar is slammed by fans for using the word ‘gay’ in a derogatory way
Madonna has been busy being both sexist and homophobic.
In what should have been a relatively inoffensive word association game published on Buzzfeed, the superstar was asked to give her opinion on a number of subjects from Crocs to Instagram.
When presented with the word kale, she responded “gay”, presumably to indicate that she doesn’t like the leafy superfood. She was quickly criticised by Buzzfeed users, one of whom commented: “I am surprised she is using the word ‘gay’ as an insult. I thought she was more sensitive than that.”
Another added: “Madonna is as culturally sensitive as a bull in a china shop. Really. She puts her foot in her mouth constantly.”
She also applied the word “gay” to Vladmir Putin, most probably in relation to the Russian Prime Minister’s anti-gay views, but it’s difficult to know for sure.
She added further fuel to the fire by describing Hillary Clinton as “angry”. Because as everyone knows, a woman who intelligently and passionately voices her opinion on a political issue isn’t being persuasive like her male counterparts – they’re just having a rant.
Madonna has a huge gay following and is a strong advocate for equal rights, so her latest omission seems a little uncharacteristic. She is also a keen health addict, so it’s surprising that she wouldn’t be a fan of the delicious leafy superfood kale.
However, she was forced to apologise earlier this year for using the word “n****r” to describe her son Rocco in an Instagram picture.
“I am sorry if I offended anyone with my use of the N-word on Instagram,“ she said. ”It was not meant as a racial slur ... I am not a racist.”
