‘Of course your name is Karen’: Madonna SNAPS at ‘b****’ troll who criticized her Daunte Wright post calling for gun control… as she denies having ‘armed guards’ for protection
- Madonna, 62, hit back at an Internet troll on Tuesday who attempted to call out the singer’s political post about the death of Daunte Wright
- Instagram user Karen Gayler appeared to be calling Madge a hypocrite, saying ‘I bet you have people with guns to protect you and your family’
- But the 62-year-old entertainer hit back calling Karen a ‘b*****’ saying ‘you know nothing about my life’ and denied having ‘armed guards’
- As a parting shot, Madonna added, ‘Of course your name is Karen’ – in reference to the name being synonymous with often racist, entitled middle-aged women
Madonna has hit back at an Instagram user who criticized the pop singer for posting a video of the death of Daunte Wright, alongside a politically-charged caption calling for gun control in America.
The 62-year-old entertainer had warned followers Tuesday that the footage of Wright, 20, being shot by veteran officer Kimberly Potter, 48, was ‘deeply upsetting’ as she criticized Police Chief Tim Gannon’s explanation of it being an ‘accident.’
An Instagram follower by the name of Karen Gayler then attacked Madonna for her stance on gun control in the comments section, claiming the superstar was a hypocrite, saying ‘I bet you have people with guns to protect you and your family.’

‘If you take the guns away criminals will ALWAYS find weapons,’ Karen commented under Madonna’s post, adding: ‘You live behind high walls with protection. You do not live in the real world. Criminals do not fear police, judges, or jail.’
However, Madonna promptly snapped back in a scathing reply: ‘B***h I don’t have any security or armed guards around me. Come see me and tell me to my face how not real my world is. I dare you.’
The Material Girl continued: ‘You know nothing about me or my life. The only criminals I see right now are the police who are paid to protect the people. But police are protected by judges and the criminal justice system which is a joke because there is no justice if you are a person of color.’

As a parting shot, Madonna added, ‘Of course your name is Karen’ – referencing the fact that the name ‘Karen’ has now become synonymous with pushy, entitled middle-aged women – and more recently, racist ones who target people of color.
It is not yet clear what charges Brooklyn Center Police Officer Kimberly Potter will face over the death of the 20-year-old black man but multiple sources told KSTP they could be filed on Wednesday.
Both Potter and Police Chief Tim Gannon resigned on Tuesday two days after Wright was shot dead after he was pulled over for what police said were expired license plate tags.

On Monday, Madonna had posted another Instagram post about the incident, as she called for gun control in a caption alongside a picture of herself behind a shattered glass from a bullet.
‘There have been over 130 mass shootings in the U.S. so far and we’ve only gotten to April,’ the singer began in her caption.
‘A Tragedy made all the more tragic because there is. Solution. It’s called Gun Control! Wake up America! History just keeps repeating itself. #wakeup #guncontrol’
In July last year, Madonna herself was called a ‘Karen’ as a slur, after she re-posted coronavirus conspiracy theories online.
The post was flagged by Instagram for containing misinformation and eventually taken down.
