Madonna clarified her anti-Trump speech from the Women's March in an Instagram post


Madonna's profanity-laden anti-Donald Trump speech at Saturday's Women's March on Washington certainly raised a few eyebrows. 

But the pop star took a moment Sunday to clarify one statement in particular. 

During the march, Madonna said that she's "thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House," but her Instagram post on Sunday aimed to clear up that statement.

WATCH | Saturday Madonna said, "Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House." 

“Yesterday’s Rally. was an amazing and beautiful experience. I came and performed Express Yourself and thats exactly what i did. However I want to clarify some very important things," Madonna wrote in the caption of her photo. 

Madonna wrote that she is not a violent person and did not intend to encourage or promote violence. The 58-year-old added that she felt that one line was taken "wildly out of context." 

“I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt," Madonna explained in her post. "However, I know that acting out of anger doesn’t solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love.”

Madonna, who supported Hillary Clinton during the election cycle, was among dozens of celebrities who attended the Women's March on Washington.

America Ferrera delivered a fiery speech,  Ashley Judd read a poem called "Nasty Woman," Scarlett Johansson delivered a personal and passionate defense of Planned Parenthood and singer Alicia Keys called on women to take action.
