This has been developing for some time, but Madonna's ex, the model and sometimes actor Tony Ward, is now fully devoted to the QAnon conspiracy theory, posting about imaginary child-sex cults, decrying COVID-19 as a hoax and more.
His most recent Instagram Stories have him literally cheering on accused murderer Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old Blue Lives Matter gun nut who traveled from out of state into Kenosha, Wisconsin, and allegedly shot three protesters, killing two. Rittenhouse has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
Tucker Carlson has defended Rittenhouse, blaming his involvement on Democrats unable to handle protests. Ann Coulter explicitly endorsed Rittenhouse's killings, flatly stating he should be president:
Ward's descent down this rabbit hole is disturbing. He used to be a real beauty and for many seemed a great match for Madonna. He had addiction issues and was given the heave-ho, but she's still friendly with him. In fact, he almost played the gun-toting killer in her controversial God Control video (but was busy, doing what, I don't know ... perhaps he didn't want to be in an anti-gun project), she's in touch with him and her manager Guy Oseary still follows him.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
I remember when Madonna began dating him and his nude-modeling history was exposed. His poses are legendary in the later history of beefcake imagery, as was his bubblebutt. In a 2018 interview with Rick Castro, Tony lamented that he was once more famous for his ass, but, “I lost it ... I want it back.”
We just want Tony Ward back.
