Apparently rapper loving Pop singer Madonna has a new album dropping called Rebel Heart. But the Internets didn’t appreciate her using images of icons like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, Jr. to promote the project. 

Reports TMZ:

Madonna is defending photoshopped images of Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela she posted on Instagram … claiming the pics were never intended to insult anyone.

If you missed it … Madonna posted a series of pics on her page Friday — showing the faces of Mandela, MLK and various icons bound with black string — like the cover of her new album “Rebel Heart.”

Following an online backlash — where some longtime fans swore they were done with — Madonna took to her Facebook to defend the pics … saying, “This is neither a crime or an insult or racist.”

It does seem like very poor taste, no?

Check out the assortment of images, including Princess Diana and Bob Marley, in the following pages. Let us know what you think in the comments.
