Madonna said she's thought about 'blowing up the White House' in her Women's March speech
The 58-year-old was among thousands of protestors who took to the streets of Washington DC at the weekend for the Women’s March when she said the surprise remark.
However, despite her since insisting that she is "not a violent person" after her comments hit headlines around the globe, HITS 105 have said that they will no longer be playing any of the Like A Virgin singer's hits on the Texarkana station.
A spokesperson told Billboard: “Banning all Madonna songs at HITS 105 is not a matter of politics, it’s a matter of patriotism.
“It just feels wrong to us to be playing Madonna songs and paying her royalties when the artist has shown un-American sentiments."

“If all stations playing Madonna took their lead from us, that would send a powerful economic message to Madonna," they continued.
The statement comes after Madonna took to Instagram to defend the explosive rant, with her posting: “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. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context."

HITS 105 will no longer be playing Madonna's songs
Madonna continued: “My speech began with ‘I want to start a revolution of love’. I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world.
“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. 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."
She ended her statement by saying it was “truly an honour” to be part of the march chanting “we chose love”.
