Over the years, Madonna has had many awkward and cringe-inducing moments. The latest one she shared herself to social media.

As reported by Page Six, the Queen of Pop planned to go live on Instagram but was frozen out for repeatedly violating Instagram's terms and conditions for lewd content last week.

"What the fuck?" she said in a video shard to social media that showed the exact moment she was blocked from sharing a live video. "What's happening?" she questioned.

After understanding that she was blocked because of her scantily clad photos, she quipped, "I've never worn so many clothes in my life."


One of Madonna's handlers then proceeded to read the app's community guidelines, which stated: "We want Instagram to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression."

Apparently, Madonna no longer qualifies as "authentic" or "safe" when it comes to expression.

"I'm speechless," Madonna said in response.

Madonna had planned to go live with her "Frozen on Fire" collaborator Sickick to promote their remix of the hit. Once she couldn't, she recorded herself on Instagram Stories talking to him about Instagram being "really mysterious" and blocking her.

"I don't know why. They're not giving me a reason," she told Sickick. "It's like a bureaucracy inside of a computer."

In her defense, Madonna explained that she had not posted "anything crazy" on the app — "not this week anyways."

Putting the pieces together, Madonna wondered if perhaps it was a delayed reaction to her recently released NFT, which depicted her as mother nature, fully naked, giving birth to butterflies, insects and trees.

"But I'm not really sure," she said. Accepting defeat, Madonna said she was "sorry to let everybody down," she said. "I was really looking forward to this."

Perhaps it's best for everyone if she hung up Instagram for a bit and regrouped. See the blocked moment below.
