2017-01-23 12:20

New York - The US Secret Service is reportedly investigating Madonna after she said at the Washington, DC, women's march on Saturday that she had at times been angry after the election and had thought "an awful lot about blowing up the White House".

The Daily Mail reports that the US Secret Service will be investigating Madonna, however the decision to prosecute or not is ultimately up to the US Attorney's office.

This comes after the Living For Love hitmaker defended her fiery, expletive-laden speech, saying her words were "taken wildly out of context."

In a statement on Sunday on Instagram , Madonna said she was trying to express that there are two ways to respond to Donald Trump's election: With hope or with outrage. She said she hopes to effect change "with love."

Madonna wrote that she doesn't promote violence and people should listen to her speech "in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context."

Cable news networks broadcasting her speech cut away after Madonna used several expletives. MSNBC later apologised.
