In recent years, Madonna‘s ‘controversial nature’ has leaned towards ‘altruistic’ territory- using her star power to defend the likes of Malala Yousafzai and Moscow’s ‘Pussy Riot.’
Unfortunately, in a move that some are already billing an attention-seeking ploy, the ‘Like a Prayer‘ performer has sparked controversy today, by using the ‘n word’ in a comment she left on Instagram minutes ago.
Why the digital community are up in arms this afternoon?
An unfortunate message below…
With a press release denying the icon is a racist and reinforcing her long-running ties to the African-American community imminent, we’re sure this foolish but conveniently timed remark will do very little to dent the icon’s public image.
That being said, there are many who find themselves repulsed by her decision to use ‘that word’, demanding answers we doubt anyone in her camp is currently prepared to answer.
So, let us know…
What do you make of the remark?
