Madonna has come under fire from a victims’ rights group after the Material Girl was photograhed strutting down the red carpet in a pair of handgun high-heels during Monday night’s New York City premiere of her new movie, Filth and Wisdom.
“I am horrified that Madonna can see these shoes as fashion,” activist Lynn Costello, of Mothers Against Murder And Aggression (MAMAA), said in statement on Tuesday.
“As a mother herself I would have thought that she would have paused for a second and thought about all the young people here and in her own country that have died because of gun crime,” Costello said, adding, “She should have thought about all the young people that have died because of gun crime.”
“We need the whole of society to take responsibility and action in stopping the glamourization of weapons. Celebrities have a massive part to play and an icon like Madonna should have more sense.”
