By now, most people have  heard about the death of George Floyd, a black, Minnesota man who passed away after a white police officer kneeled on his neck.

The video has been inescapable — online and on every news program. And you’ve doubtless seen the riots, the damage to the very businesses people depend on for their work — and to provide food and other necessities for their families.

Not that any time is good for violence and destruction, but this happening during the time of the Chinese coronavirus makes it even more difficult to fathom.You may have also seen some of the good that’s come along with the bad, like these ordinary, armed citizens defending their neighborhoods from criminals.

But you probably didn’t expect to see this next story, in the wake of a man’s murder: interpretive dance by a washed-up pop star’s grown son. I’m not even kidding.

As the Wuhan flu pandemic started to gobble up headlines around the world, Madonna decided that the best way for her to commiserate with everyone was to post nearly-nude photos of herself in a bathtub, along with some word salad mishmash of poetry. Not everyone was exactly impressed, to say the least, as RedState‘s Alex Parker noted.

Thursday night, Madonna did what she does best – brought attention to herself – by sharing a video of her son David “danc[ing] to honor and pay tribute to George and His Family.” But the singer-actress-director-whatever didn’t stop there. Because she never does.

The full caption of her post read:

Brutal murder travels around the world my son David Dances to honor and pay tribute to George and His Family and all Acts of Racism and Discrimination that happen on a daily basis in America. #davidbanda #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd #MichaelJackson 

Leave it to Madonna to make a man’s death all about her. Here’s the video:

Now, the young man is a good dancer. But, it’s disgusting to use your own family members to promote your political beliefs like this.

Just a couple days ago, Madonna posted a photo to Instagram of her wearing a black thong and a bra that leaves nothing to the imagination (it’s transparent) — and the message on the post was proof that she did it to draw attention to herself:

Current Wardrobe Sitch………………And for those of you who are offended in any way by this photo then I want to let you know that I have successfully graduated from the University of Zero F*^ks Given. Thanks for coming to my Graduation Ceremony! 🎓 Class of 2020! 🎉🎉🎉

It’s worth noting that Katy Perry, one of the co-hosts of family-friendly “American Idol,” left a positive comment after Madonna’s provocation, which garnered almost 13,000 likes:

omg I just enrolled in that college!

In case you weren’t aware, Ms. Perry is employed by Disney, which owns ABC, the network which broadcasts “American Idol.” So gross.
