The BBC reports that Madonna furthered explained her comments about the discrimination against Gypsies while performing in Romania. Her publicist Liz Rosenberg said, “Madonna has been touring with a phenomenal troupe of Roma musicians who made her aware of the discrimination toward them in several countries so she felt compelled to make a brief statement.” The singer had been booed during a Bucharest concert on Wednesday night for saying, “It has been brought to my attention, that there is a lot of discrimination against Romanies and Gypsies in general in Eastern Europe—it made me feel very sad.”
