A reference to ecstasy reportedly made by Madonna at a recent concert stirred up angry comments from fellow entertainer DJ deadmau5 over the weekend.

Madonna reportedly shouted "How many people in this crowd have seen Molly?" to the concert's crowd. Molly is slang for one of the key ingredients in ecstasy.

As a result, DJ deadmau5 slammed the pop icon in public and online for glorifying the use of ecstasy. He criticized Madonna at a weekend concert in Miami, and he also called her an idiot on his Facebook page.

Madonna says the title of her newest work, "MDNA," is a reference to ecstasy and the euphoria often experienced by users.
