*Madonna thought it would be a good idea to use images of Dr. Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela to promote the attitude behind the title of her upcoming album, “Rebel Heart.”
The pics, photoshopped with black cords wrapped around their faces to mimic her album cover, sparked outrage on Friday after they were shared on her Twitter account.
