Madonna‘s new music video is a shocking and graphic recreation of a mass shooting scene … that seems to emulate the horrific Pulse Nightclub murders.
Madonna dropped the video Wednesday for her politically-charged track, “God Control” — a play on gun control — and it shows 32 incredibly disturbing seconds of people being gunned down in a nightclub.
Warning … the bloody scenes of bodies falling to the ground will be difficult for many people to watch. If Madonna’s goal was draw visceral reactions … it’s a guarantee she’ll get ’em.
In the music video … the shooting violence starts at 2 minutes, 38 seconds when you see the shooter hold a gun up to his mouth and seemingly pull the trigger — but the scene flashes to the guy opening fire on a bunch of people who are dancing in the club.
Madonna told People that her video is meant to be a commentary on the epidemic of mass shootings in the U.S., which she says is “out of control.”
She included a disclaimer at the beginning that reads, “The story you’re about to see is very disturbing. But it’s happening everywhere and it has to stop.”
