Uproar over pop singer’s ‘cheap self-publicity’ stunt
Singer Madonna writes Taliban target and activist young Malala Yousafzai’s name across her back after she was shot on a school bus as a show of support.
This could have been the most inappropriate show of support by the 54-year-old singer.
Stripping on-stage during a live show was the worst form of support Malala who was shot by Taliban can ask for.
Only a few days back Madonna flashed her modesty and ‘ironically’ calling Barack Obama a Muslim.
Madonna’s “MDNA Tour” has been rife with controversy as it’s made various stops around the world, and Wednesday night’s performance in Los Angeles was no exception.
Things started earnestly enough when Madonna took a break from performing to tell the sold-out crowd of 18,000 it was time to “have our serious chat.”
Madonna continued to use her ‘MDNA Tour’ to make yet another controversial statement by strip-teasing to ‘show her support’ for Malala Yousafzai, who was shot on a school bus for writing a blog about how
According to Entertainment Today, she told fans that she ‘cried’ after hearing news about the Pakistani girl.
She said: ‘The 14-year-old Pakistani girl who was shot on a school bus for writing a blog about how important education was to her.
‘The Taliban stopped her bus and shot her. Do you understand the sickness and absurdity of this?’
She rallied the crowd by shouting at them to support education and those who help women.
Her verbal support was not the end of the story; the millionaire chose to ‘dedicate’ a strip tease to the girl. She turned her back to reveal ‘Malala’ written across it.
Malala Yousafzai is currently in a critical condition after being shot on her head.
And Madonna through this striptease did little to improve the situation.
There was a chorus of disapproval from Twitter users, who branded her performance a shameless attempt to garner attention.
@OHPakistan tweetwed to NBC News’ Amna Nawaz: ‘Get it Right: Associating #Madonna with #Malala IS DISRESPECT TO #Malala!!! Plz. Give #Malala a rest!’
User @bijm30caahm condemned the move: ‘Not the right way to pay Homage to Brave Malala. Its a way to earn cheap self popularity.’
A Taliban gunman boarded a packed school bus and shot a teenage education activist twice at point blank range.
The brave teenager was targeted by the Taliban after speaking out against atrocities committed under the regime.
