Earlier today while workers in Marseille, France were assembling Madonna's tour set, the roof of the set fell in and killed one person and injured seven others. Immediately after the accident. the police closed the stadium in an effort to remove everyone from beneath the structure. Madonna released a statement where she said, "I am devastated to have just received this tragic news. My prayers go out to those who were injured and their families along with my deepest sympathy to all those affected by this heartbreaking news."
Am I wrong to maybe have wanted more from Madonna? These are people who are working for her. Maybe they were just hired for the day locally or maybe they have been on the tour for the entire time, but they are working for her. Did she try and go down to the stadium and be with the rest of the workers? I know that if people were working for me and they got killed doing something for me, I would do a whole lot more than just release a pro-forma statement through my publicist.
Maybe she did go to the scene. Maybe she showed up and comforted her workers. I haven't seen any reports she did though. The show they were setting up the stage for was scheduled for this Sunday so perhaps she isn't in town. I would think she could get there though fairly quickly.
