//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.jsMadonna has responded to the backlash of her Rebel Heart Campaign. The campaign offended folks when she posted images of MLK Jr. and Nelson Mandela with a black cord wrapped around their faces. The images were apparently used to promote her campaign and signify the leaders as “Rebel Hearts.” (Complete SIDE EYE)

Via Facebook, Madonna responded with the following message,

“I’m sorry
I’m not comparing my self to anyone
I’m admiring and acknowledging there Rebel Hearts
This is niether a crime or an insult or racist!
I also did it with Michael jaclson and frida khalo and marilyn monroe
Am I saying I am them
NO
I’m saying they are Rebel Hearts too.
And
I didn’t do it
My fans did
And I just re posted those photos
My fans aren’t racist either
If they put me in the same category as these other people
Thank you. I’m very flattered and I hope one day to live up to 1 100th of what those people accomplished.” – Madonna

Of course Madonna followed her statement with a photoshopped picture of the legendary Basquiat.

This isn’t the first time Madonna has annoyed the black community. In early 2014, Madonna called her son the n word on Instagram.

Note: We noticed the spelling errors in her statement and will not change them. Thanks.
