Racist or Nah? Madonna Posts Photo of Adopted Kids Massaging Her Feet

Madge has the Internet in a frenzy over the pic.

Published July 14, 2015

Madonna is no stranger to controversy, so her latest attention-seeking ploy is nothing out of the ordinary for the pop icon. This time, the "B***h I'm Madonna" performer got her African adopted kids involved, and the suspect post is making a lot of people say, "Huh?" She posted a photo of them massaging her feet while on their knees as she lied on her back, luxuriating.

Captioned, "#motherlove............how I'm gonna get through the day. Mercy and David giving the best foot rubs!!!," the photo almost immediately went viral within minutes of it being posted. While the 9-year-olds seemed to be unbothered while massaging their famous mom's gams, social media erupted, slamming the pop star for yet another outlandish post.


One Instagram user even went as far as saying that the singer personally adopted the kids to service her: "I knew she adopted them kids so she could turn them into house slaves," the user wrote. "Smh @madonna you ain't s**t for this pic b***h!... I do see it as a racist thing. And no ones [sic] gonna make me think otherwise."

Some other users just saw it as an adorable bonding moment between a mother and her children. "This is super cuteee. So muuuch love in one pic. <3," another user wrote.

This isn't the first time that Madonna has involved her kids in a questionable attention-seeking post on the photo sharing app. Last year, she came under scrutiny after sharing a photo of her then-13-year-old son, Rocco, with the caption, "No one messes with Dirty Soap! Mama said knock you out #disn***a."

So, what do you think? Is Madonna's post racist or nah?
