    Madonna disappointed many Parisian fans after performing for just 45 minutes.

    Livid concertgoers booed Madonna after she cut her show short in Paris on Thursday.

    The “Like a Virgin” singer left the stage after a brief 45-minute set while upset fans stayed in their seats chanting “slut” and “refund” in French, the Hollywood Reporter reported.

    Audience members also took to Twitter, using the hash tag #MDNAParis, to express their outrage. 

    “How much does it cost to see Madonna at l’Olympia? It’s 6.3 euros per minute!," one fan tweeted.

    The YouTube livestream of the concert received thousands of dislikes and negative comments.

    The concert was added to the MDNA tour just last week after French far-right political party National Front threatened to sue her for displaying an image of Marine Le Pen, the party’s leader, with a swastika on her forehead, according to reports.

    Fans payed from $98 to $340 to see the pop star, reportedly selling out the 2,700-capacity venue in just a few hours. Many even camped outside the famed concert hall two days before the concert. The show was meant to encourage coexistence, Madonna told the audience.

    "I've heard that a certain Marine Le Pen was upset with me. It's not my intention to make enemies. It's my intention to promote tolerance," she announced to the audience, according to THR.

    "So the next time you want to point the finger at somebody and blame them for a problem in your life, take that finger and point it back at you,” she added.
