The mother of four went on to note, "I am not a violent person. I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context."

Madonna added, "I spoke in a metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things – one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn't solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love."

Shortly after posting her clarification, Madonna went on to wish her daughter, Mercy James, a happy 11th birthday with a sweet Instagram.
