DENVER (October 19, 2012)—Some Madonna fans in Colorado are upset after the music superstar used guns during a performance.
Madonna started her show Thursday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver with a gun scene, which she has used in previous performances.
KUSA-TV says it received several calls Friday from concertgoers saying they were offended she used guns and violence as part of her show in light of recent events in the state that included a mass shooting at a theater during a Batman movie on July 20 that left 12 people dead.
In a statement before beginning the tour, Madonna said she does not condone the use of guns.
She said she is using the guns as symbols of intolerance and "the pain I have felt from having my heart broken."
