Madonna Pisses Off French Leader with Swastika Stunt
By MadHollywood on June 5, 2012
Madonna, who is well-known for her provocative ways throughout her illustrious career as a pop icon, has done it again.
Madge seems to have offended French National Front leader, Marine Le Pen, by depicting her with a swastika on her forehead during her show in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Madonna performed her song “Nobody Knows Me” in front of a giant screen that depicted various world leaders and politicians.
At one point in the song, Le Pen’s face appeared, along with a swastika insignia superimposed on her forehead.
Though the image only flashed on the screen for a few seconds, it was long enough to cause a stir among the crowd.
We hear that Le Pen, is outraged and is threatening a lawsuit against Madonna, 53, over the defamatory stage stunt.
Marine is the daughter of her parties former leader, Jean-Marie Le Pen, a Holocaust denier who has been accused and convicted several times at home and abroad of antisemitism.
"We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such," another member of the National Front insisted. "If Madonna repeats this slur in France then she will certainly be taken to court."
The party's lawyer, Wallerand de Saint-Just, confirmed he was considering legal action against Madge.
