Madonna under fire over Charlie Hebdo posts
The artist used the "#JeSuisCharlie" hashtag, along with “#RebelHeart” the title of her new album, in social media posts
U.S. pop icon Madonna came under fire as she was accused of using the Charlie Hebdo massacre and Paris attacks to promote her album, Britain’s the Daily Mail reported on Friday.
The artist used the "#JeSuisCharlie" hashtag, along with “#RebelHeart” the title of her new album, in posts on her Twitter and Instagram accounts.
#JeSuisCharlie was created out of solidarity with those killed in an attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
“Madonna has been aggressive in the promotion for her new album, but I am surprised that she didn’t realize, or no one advised her, that in the wake of such a senseless attack, self-promotion is definitely prohibited,” quoted a blogger as saying.
“Tell me you just didn't put an advert for your album on that message of solidarity,” one user on Twitter said.

Under her Instagram post, one user said: “I've been a fan since 84 but sorry that's a little f***** up to tag your album.. Cheers.”
Another user commented under the same picture saying “…way to self-promote through a tragedy [sic].”
