Fans ate up Madonna’s mid-concert political speech and endorsement of Barack Obama last night. But as one concert-goer’s video clip shows, the Material Girl went a little overboard on the diversity pander. “For better or worse,” she exulted, “we have a black Muslim” in the White House.
Errrrrr, we do?
Madonna, you did not call the President a black Muslim in your Vote For Obama portion of your DC show.

Oh yes she did. She also praised the, uh, “Muslim’s” stance on gay rights. Celebrity endorsements are hard.

While the crowd cheered Madonna’s oh-so-informed commentary, at least a few in attendance noticed the gaffe:
Granted it's loud in here, but I'm pretty sure #Madonna just said we have a black Muslim in the White House

PolitiFact rates Madonna’s statement false, but *Obama swoon*.
It appears Madonna is a low-information voter. http://t.co/EoZUxoLH

Coming soon: “Black Muslim 2012″ koozies designed to fit your official Obama birth certificate mug? Like a birther … hey!
I denounce this hate speech, with a poorly-informed demagogue telling a crowd Obama is a "black Muslim". http://t.co/S4M87PYs

And we have an ignorant idiot commenting from England. RT @huffingtonpost: Madonna: 'We've got a black Muslim in the White House…'…

And of course, what informed endorsement is complete without a companion tramp stamp?

Evidently “black Muslim in the White House” wouldn’t fit.
Madge claims she was being “ironic.” It was the trucker hat of endorsements or something. A likely story.
For a 15 year-old, Morgan Spence is well on his way to an impressive career in animation.
In a collaboration with Lego author Warren Elsmore, the English lad has recreated some of film history’s most iconic moments in a short animated video. Elsmore created the mini-figurines for his book Brick Flicks. He then reached out to the youngster for some help with promotional content.
After three weeks of meticulous work, they were finished with the video that paid homage to these classic films.

Today, Calum Hood of Australian pop rock band 5 Seconds of Summer decided it would be a good idea to throw a little shade at his Australian fans. To his credit, he quickly apologized. Then he deleted both the original tweet and the subsequent apology, perhaps hoping that none of his 1.4 million followers saw anything.
Maybe it’s just us, but this doesn’t seem like a very good social media strategy.
