Diplo Defends Madonna Against Ageism In Most Diplo Way Possible
Diplo has never hesitated to fire off some controversial tweets, and he’s back to stoke another round of internet outrage — but at least his latest questionable dispatch was intended to defend Madonna against ageism and possibly sexism. Presumably responding to criticisms that Madge isn’t “acting her age” in the “Bitch I’m Madonna” video, the Rebel Heart producer tweeted, “I’m confused that Madonna not allowed to be sexy but Caitlyn Jenner is?” Best-case scenario here is that he’s alluding to the fact that Jenner is nine years older than Madonna.
He deleted the tweet shortly after posting it today (June 18), but as always with these things, there’s a screengrab (care of ONTD).
I’d argue that there’s nothing particularly sexy about Madonna’s new video in the first place. Sure, it’s fun and brash and filled with cameos, but it’s not exactly meant to arouse, so this is all a moot point. Anyway, I’m not going anywhere near this debate, but feel free to let us know what you think about his tweet in the comments below.
