A photograph posted by Madonna on Instagram is stirring up controversy. The picture in question shows the pop legend receiving a foot massage from her two adopted children: Mercy and David.
An image of two African children giving a 50-year-old White woman a foot massage didn’t sit well with a lot of folks.
“F*ck you got Black kids rubbin’ ya feet for? Better put them White children to work … with their lazy privileged a**es” one person commented. “Madonna … wow! You have an army of African children to rub your feet? What else do they do for you? This is how they earn their keep?” someone else questioned.
Not everyone saw the image above as symbolism for indentured servitude.
“If it were White kids, it would just be a normal picture right? … My kids rub my feet because they see their dad do it. Nothing wrong with a kid rubbing their mother’s feet, doesnt matter the color, they look happy,” another commenter fired back. “Racist people see racism in everything. I see a mother and her children. You people are sick,” another follower added.
What do you all think of the picture? Are people getting bent of shape over nothing, or is their outrage justified?
