Madonna’s rally speech at the Women’s March in Washington D.C. this weekend mentioned “blowing up the White House” and has now gained the attention of federal authorities — as the Material Girl asserted on Sunday that she meant no harm.

The Secret Service, who is tasked with protecting President Trump and his family, has been informed of the comments and is investigating, the Gateway Pundit reported.

The singer told hundreds of thousands of marchers on Saturday: “Yes, I’m angry. I am outraged. Yes, I thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House,” she stated, sporting a black “pussycat” cap.

“I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair,” Madonna added.

She ended her F-bomb-filled speech with a positive note: “I choose love.”

The queen of pop said on Sunday that she wasn’t trying to provoke violence and that her remarks were taken “wildly out of context.”

“I want to clarify some important things. I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence, and it’s important people hear and understand in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context,” Madonna said in a post on Instagram.

On Sunday, President Trump’s team bashed the pop icon’s comments but did not mention Madonna by name.

“One of the singers said she wanted to blow up the White House. Can you imagine saying that about President Obama?” Reince Priebus, the White House Chief of Staff, told “Fox News Sunday.”

Senior White House aide, Kellyanne Conway, said that Madonna should have spent her day giving portions of her “hundreds of millions” of dollars to a women’s shelter instead of “profanity-laced insults.”

One U.S. official told The New York Post that Madonna’s statement would have to be evaluated for its importance.

“It’s all about intent. Does she intend to do harm to the White House or President Trump? Otherwise, it will be characterized as inappropriate,” the official stated. “If it’s characterized as inappropriate, then there won’t be any discussions with the U.S. Attorney. If it’s determined that there’s intent, then there will be discussions with the U.S. Attorney, and they’ll take it from there.”
